Great staging, Thought-provoking, Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing

See it if you'd like to explore loneliness in a few different ways, presented by four actors, never more than two on stage at a time - monologue rich.

Don't see it if you want the full backstory-here you are thrust into the interaction between the main character and three others in a 95 minute one act play

Compelling, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Absorbing

See it if you want to see a well written, acted and directed suspenseful drama that throws a major plot twist at you in each of it’s four short acts.

Don't see it if you don’t like to listen and pay attention to long monologues to understand the entire story or unexpected eerie endings or small theaters.

Resonant, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if Phenomenal performance by Sean Folster as John - well worth seeing just for this.

Don't see it if The other performances are not bad but pale in comparison; multiple storylines feel somewhat disconnected.

Great writing, Clever, Intelligent, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if It's a small play, 4 characters (mostly 2) but perfectly executed. And McPherson is always worth seeing. Beautifully done.

Don't see it if If you don't like plays about personal crises this is not for you
