Ambitious, Funny, Thought-provoking, Resonant, Edgy

See it if 8th annual FTTF continues to be provocative platform for emerging African-American playwrights. Very potent material packed into time frame

Don't see it if Overall staging a little clunky, musical soundscape between the six plays obtrusive; set changes could be quicker but work is of the moment

Great writing, Great acting, Funny, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you want a reflection of society and to be challenged on a variety of social issues.

Don't see it if you want a passive theater experience.
