Thought-provoking, Absorbing, Profound, Resonant, Great writing

Don't see it if You’re looking for a light fluffy show. This is a well written unflinching look at some of the deep dark questions faced by those involved. Read more

See it if A very serious play about terminal illness, death and dispear. Morbid but some good plot lines.

Don't see it if If a serious subject about terminal illness and dying not a gre as t set, acting questionable.
