See it if You like cheap, summer festivals, in regional-theatre-like spaces. Scheduled 4 shows; saw 3. I was 1 of 3 ppl, in the audience, for the 1st.
Don't see it if The space is not acoustic-friendly, hot, and seeing only a few audience members can take you out of it- all together. need progress n growth
See it if Go for Christ Detained, Floor Is Lava, Horses, Occasionally Nothing -- all edgy subversive fare.
Don't see it if You are looking for light comedy, technical effects, or conventional narrative.
See it if You need your fringe festivals. Highly recommend "...waiting", "Michael is black", and "HORSE". PCTF is always great
