Jack (In the Box), Humpty Dumpty, Maria from the Nutcracker, Katrina from the Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Medusa, all of these lives have turned out in ways they (or we) didn’t expect. The majority of these characters originate from the Victorian era, another period when anti-intellectualism was rampant and reading was uncool.

81
Great acting, Quirky, Fun, Cute, Subversive

See it if You like fairy tales, and their subversion, and short, short, short stories.

Don't see it if You only like classics, large scale productions or single story shows.

79
Clever, Great acting, Inconsistent, Slow

See it if you like the idea of a dark, alternate take on popular nursery rhymes (and one oddly chosen Greek myth) performed by solid actors.

Don't see it if you're really looking for consistency. Each monologue in itself is good, but a couple of them are awkward within the piece as a whole.

Don't see it if You have no sense of humor and don’t appreciate fairy tales

69
Ambitious, Disappointing, Entertaining

See it if 5 (not 4) playlets, one great, 2 good, one ok but about twice as long as needed, one a Trump parody that really didn't work for me.

Don't see it if you need all parts of a play to be equally good. This is wildly uneven
