Somewhat banal and cliched, Slow, Quirky, Disappointing, Relevant

See it if you are up for the horrible affect of drug and alcohol abuse on a family - good, young actor in first role, good points on rights/tolerance.

Don't see it if you want a flawless production - acting is uneven, set and prop problems, script is long and lumpy, pauses interrupt flow. Long first act.

Long, Disappointing, Cliched, Sophomoric writing, Confusing

See it if you are a friend of the cast. The cast tried their best with this confusing, sophomoric book, which feels written by a teenager.

Don't see it if you want a coherent, intelligent story about alcoholism and physical abuse. This is NOT it. Read more

Intense, Clever, Absorbing

See it if The cast as alcoholics were spot on. The son did an excellent job. Smart set design. Reminiscent of most alcoholic genes. I enjoyed it.

Don't see it if You dont like addiction portrayals or small venues. There were many pauses with actors off stage.

Great acting, Banal, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if You like plays that deal with family situations and problems. Also if you enjoy a no frills type of show with great acting.

Don't see it if You would rather see a play with a lighter subject matter. Also if you are not comfortable seeing a show that deals with addiction issues.
