Cliched, Disappointing, Insipid, Confusing, Unfocused

See it if you are interested in how a play is developed. There are some suggested ideas but they need considerable further work.

Don't see it if you are looking for a completed theatrical work with fully evolved characters, plot, theme etc.

Disappointing, Dizzying, Excruciating, Fluffy

See it if You really want to work hard and use your imagination. It's a very black box set.

Don't see it if You are bothered by way too much use of the F bomb for absolutely no reason at all Read more

Uneven, Literate writing, Confusing

See it if You like to support innovative theatre. The production was uneven and the ending confusing, but the writing was quite beautiful at times.

Don't see it if You want plays to be perfect, or can't stand them less than fully staged.

Delightful, Funny, Surprising, Sweet, Ambitious

See it if you want a show to grab you by the hand and take you in unexpected directions; you like a blend of crass humor and a sad, beautiful heart.

Don't see it if you need everything smoothed out - there are subplots here that could be whole shows, and so they can't get full attention and detail.

Absorbing, Clever, Funny, Great acting, Quirky

See it if With minimal stage props, the play delivers an easy story line to follow, makes your mind not even think of the props. Great great actors!

Don't see it if Small intimate plays are not your thing

Confusing, Disappointing, Disjointed

See it if you want to see a play that offers two competing but similar story-lines from the past and present occurring at the same time.

Don't see it if you want to see a coherent play that focuses on its goals (opposed to coming off as trying to be edgy for complexity). I give it a C grade.
