Gripping, Beautifully played, Beautifully staged, Nightmarish, Evocative

See it if you’d like to encounter a thrilling piece of contemporary European theater, or see a nightmare staged with admirable (if creepy) lucidity.

Don't see it if you are looking for a traditional play: In this production both subject matter & form are eccentric. Read more

Confusing, Dizzying, Edgy, Great staging, Great acting

See it if you want to see challenging, experimental theater done exceptionally well. Great acting, smart staging and wonderful production values.

Don't see it if you want a simple story told simply. It's complex and confusing.. but that may be the point.

Confusing, Intense, Great staging, Surreal, Thought-provoking

See it if you like existential dramas set in a surreal dystopian landscape. You're interested in the physical aspect of theater.

Don't see it if you want a fun, easy-to-follow plot with solid conclusions. You don't like surrealism. You can't get past the idea of a talking dog. Read more

Quirky, Intense, Great staging, Great acting, Confusing

See it if you like experimental theater with demanding acting, done very well, in the round, supported with excellent lighting and sound.

Don't see it if you want everything to make sense on its own - you have to fill in what is going on and some of the action is stuck-in-time repetition.

Intense, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Ambitious, Confusing

See it if You enjoy strange, slow-developing stories with repetitive themes, told by fantastic actors in an uniquely staged format.

Don't see it if You prefer traditional storylines with clear plot/objectives. This story folds in on itself, intentionally, and is interesting, but unclear.
