Great acting, Funny, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if you'd like a 1970 dramedy abt a blowhard husband/clever wife. 2 strg actors, gd set, gd sound design/lighting. Polished prodn. Jam'n accents

Don't see it if you can't laugh at wife being disrespected (Act 1). Still, she gets her day (Act 2). Civil unrest backdrop of 70s Jamaica. Could use cuts.

Relevant, Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging

See it if You want to see a fifty year old show that is as relevant today as it was when it was written. Great staging; acting; lighting.

Don't see it if You can’t get past the accents or the fact that it’s a little uneven. Each act feels like it’s own play.

"'Two Can Play' has, arguably, aged better than many other 35-year-old dramatic works. While definitely a 'message' play, it doesn't seem preachy-at least not in this sensitively rendered iteration from Davis, Rogers and Sylvester."
