Great acting, Edgy, Intense, Confusing, Indulgent

See it if Three outstanding performances make this worth it. Especially Wyatt Fenner's hypnotic antagonist. He is utterly captivating.

Don't see it if The play itself is rather confusing, breaking the fourth wall and jumping in and out of the characters' imaginations. Tends to get muddled.

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

See it if you want to be provoked, have your preconceived notions questioned, and like shows playing with the 4th wall. 3 strong actors.

Don't see it if you do not like violence, sexually violent stories.

Ambitious, Confusing
