Confusing, Interesting use of internet, Ambitious, Edgy, Thought-provoking

See it if you are curious about the role social media plays in plays. They have a big screen at the back of the stage but read all the comments aloud

Don't see it if non-linear sequences confuse you. Scenes repeat with & without variations, memories or fantasies overlaying various intersecting plots

Relevant, Slow, Great acting, Confusing, Absorbing

See it if Memory play of classmates' recollections of the legacy of a sanguine graduate who unwittingly but voluntarily becomes an Afghan martyr.

Don't see it if As with any recollections, recall can be vague and foggy, reflected in a fractured, confusing narrative. Cutting subplot. "The good fight." Read more

"Ms. Daly’s poignant premise has potential and her well drawn characters are appealing but a preoccupation with stylistic techniques undermines the play’s effectiveness. The nonlinear structure, repetitiousness and vagueness are wearying...'#yourmemorial' contains a number of moving and haunting sequences that are embedded in its arguably strained format."
