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.

Confusing, Disappointing, Edgy, Great acting

See it if A play about how some people view and regard illegal immigrants is something you might find enjoyable, and you are okay with stereotypes.

Don't see it if You want to have a feel good experience. This play won't do it for you.

Ambitious, Excruciating, Intense, Great acting, Delightful

See it if You like great actors working their magic with some challenging material.

Don't see it if You don't like nudity or functional nudity (according to my partner), or a more abstract and freewheeling style of direction.
