See it if You like old Irish short stories. Nice that they haven't been done before. Good actions. 2 of the 4 short plays were stronger.
Don't see it if Don't like works from another period in time or slow Irish think pieces.
See it if you like Irish storytelling, old fashioned one act plays; love seeing actors appearing in different roles (in different one-act plays)
Don't see it if you would not be able to get over an extremely weak 1st play, frustrated in not knowing more in one or two plays..
See it if You like period one-act mid 20th century dramas/comedies. Teresa Deevy is an Irish playwright who follows the norms of her times. Enjoyable!
Don't see it if Expect full length play with elaborate sets. Modern costumes and fast pace or action scenes.
See it if you are hooked on Deevy as we are. Of the four one acts, two were very good Clever use of the scenery to show various sites.
Don't see it if you want to compare the one acts to the 3 major productions already produced by the MINT. They are unapproachable.
See it if you enjoy seeing Irish plays. Some of it is very charming. Great cast let down by dull, slow-paced direction and forever scene changes.
Don't see it if long scene changes between every one-act annoys you. There are better ways to design the set so the changes take minimal time.
See it if You enjoy thoughtful and clever one act plays. The King of Spain's Daughter was particularly interesting.
Don't see it if You want a single narrative with a conclusive ending. These plays were short stories with less of an sharp ending.
See it if You want to see rarely/never produced plays. You enjoy Irish dramas. You want classic plays performed by well-trained classical actors.
Don't see it if You want to see contemporary drama. You dislike short plays. You don't like Irish plays.
See it if like suspensive, surprising, uninevitable, charming, Irish comedic drama set in the 1930s but timeless in relevance and exquisitely produced
Don't see it if you have no taste for nuance, Irish irony, charm and brogue, or prefer "diverse" casts and themes, dance, raucous comedy, hip hop or musical
See it if you're a fan of Irish playwrights and of the short-form one act. These are bite-sized plays, respectably mounted, that don't always add up.
Don't see it if you don't like old-fashioned style writing, slight plays about Irish life, or a smorgasbord theatrical shorts.
See it if You like one-acts, are familiar with melancholy in Irish lit, appreciate the pacing of these older plays. They all seemed the same by end.
Don't see it if Want crisp scenes/snappy dialog. Director has slowed pace down even further than the playwright intended. You want happy endings/resolution.
See it if You like short plays. You want to see great acting. You are or are not familiar with Teresa Deevy. You want to enjoy the theater.
Don't see it if You don't want to enjoy a night out. You need a fast paced play.
See it if you want to see well-written and thoughtful short plays - previously undiscovered - that explore love and marriage compellingly.
Don't see it if you want flashy spectacle or extreme drama. These are fully fleshed out but bite-size stories that will stick with you for a while.
See it if you enjoy one-act plays. These plays are, at best, uneven. The second act curtain raiser was my favorite.
Don't see it if you do not like Irish one-act plays. Or if you have trouble understanding accents.
See it if you can enjoy the show for what it is - 1 act vignettes without a clear beginning or ending.
Don't see it if you prefer a more hashed out play that fully incorporates all the essential story elements
See it if you'd like to discover a hidden gem with classic-style Irish characters, dialogue and poetry delivered by wonderful actors
Don't see it if you want a play complete from beginning to end
See it if You like short plays. Four short plays from a seldom seen female Irish playwright from mid 20th century. Tender eye opening stories.
Don't see it if You don't like quiet stories that ask you to look at your life or place in society and perhaps see it from another point of view.
See it if Poignant snapshots into the human comedy beautifully articulated in charming Irish brogues sounds good to you.
Don't see it if You prefer dramatic action with lots of plot rather than quiet quirky characters revealing their humanity between the lines.
See it if you have enjoyed previous Mint productions of plays by Deevy or if you like seeing actors play a few different roles in one evening.
Don't see it if don't like one-act plays, particularly those that seem like fragments of a longer play.
See it if you like charming, prim Irish writing. Amusing characters. Some nice acting, especially the handsome AJ Shively.and the older women.
Don't see it if you don't like one-acts -- some of which are lame. Also if you don't get Irish brogue. Some of the women's costumes are delightfully silly.
Also The best parts for me were the entr'acte poetry readings
See it if You don't mind starting in the middle of a plot and mostly leaving unresolved. Actors were unique in each role. Accents affect etc.
Don't see it if You want a linear narrative with a beginning, middle and end. It's important to have parity in the talent and quality of the stories
Also I missed the first one so can't attest to it.
