Thought-provoking, Relevant, Intense, Great acting, Great writing

See it if you enjoy well-written plays that ring true, this one about millennials in the age of social media employment and life. Good direction & set

Don't see it if you are not interested in the pressures on the young workforce today or do not like dealing with other people's tensions, sometimes loud!

Absorbing, Great acting, Resonant, Great staging, Intense

See it if relationship driven dramas excite you. Four school friends explore the changes that have occurred in a few years of real world living.

Don't see it if you like your theater light. The drama is interpersonal and stunning.

Thought-provoking, Relevant, Very good acting, Absorbing

See it if you want to see a smart, thoughtful look at Millennials transitioning from coddled youth to self-reliant adults and facing success & failure

Don't see it if u expect a typical slacker comedy about typical 20-somethings. [There are laughs here, but it's a more sober, wiser look @ life's struggles]

Quality direction and writing, Interesting, Solid staging, Great acting

See it if you want to see a show with fine acting, staging, and direction about a topic most of the audience can relate to.

Don't see it if you want to see show where you have a deep connection to the characters. If you don't mind a too hopeful, unrealistic conclusion. Read more

Insightful, Genuine, Riveting, Resonant, Great writing

See it if you had a quarter-life career crisis within the last 5-10 yrs; are/know someone who was successful (like Series C successful) in their 20s.

Don't see it if your job isn’t a big part of identity. May interest less if your work is indisputably useful—like medicine, military, primary education. Read more

"Like a 20-something Sorkin, Alex Riad has written a serious story of struggle for identity, connection, and success using crackling humor and genuine feeling. The dialogue is simultaneously realistic and punny...At an hour and 45 minutes, the road to resolution is a little long, though the ultimate destination is very satisfying...Explores societal pressures and their consequences through a lens of wit and affection resulting in a thoroughly entertaining and engaging production."
