Cliched, Confusing, Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if The subject of sexual abuse on a high school level is weighing down the actors who are a touch too green behind the ears for that endeavor.

Don't see it if Poor sound editing and writing doesn't help this production in a NON-AIRCONDITIONED theater on a hot summer night in New York City.
