See it if You like new work on a sparse set. You like a well written twisted relationship piece that's mostly through the thoughts of the actors

Don't see it if You're looking for lighthearted entertainment. You don't like adultery played out or thought out. Or plays with English accents

See it if you like excellent acting, creative staging, unique presentation style. Professional theatre types will appreciate the technical skill.

Don't see it if you are looking for something light or whimsical. This is a heady piece that casts an unfiltered light onto the human condition.

Clever, Funny, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if you want to see something different. The format of this play is very different from usual methods of storytelling (in a good way).

Don't see it if you aren't open minded and are expecting a traditional theatrical staging.

Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent

See it if You would enjoy a uniformly strong cast performing an absorbing play. Beautifully staged in a charming theater.

Don't see it if You insist on musical numbers in every play you see.
