Ambitious, Edgy, Great acting

See it if You want to experience how kids think and react nowadays. Not realistic though, my 6 years old niece surely do not act or talk like that.

Don't see it if Watching a 6 years old talks like an adult is too much for you. Not sure about the focal point of the story is being conveyed.

"There is a sweetness only slightly diluted by tartness to Sam Silbiger's brand new 'Six Years Old,' one of the plays in this year's Corkscrew Theater Festival at the Paradise Factory in the East Village. Six Years Old is a gem of a play, its facets polished by the director Helen Handelman."
