Relevant, Riveting, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Intelligent

See it if you're interested in America's racial attitudes. Beautifully acted and staged (w/2 actors and 2 chairs). Humor, horror, and pathos. Moving.

Don't see it if you want light theater; YM's intense. It needs editing, esply when yg kids meet/play. But YM deserved Pulitzer finalist; strong production. Read more

Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Profound, Refreshing

See it if You want to see two superb acting performances of a masterful and dense script. Marveling at how they learned it all.

Don't see it if Stories focused on race and identity or minimalist shows aren’t of interest to you.
