Profound, Intelligent, Quirky, Great writing, Resonant

See it if you like experiments in theater that also profoundly engage deep questions about life & death.

Don't see it if you only want to see conventional plays. Read more

Experimental, Ambitious, Absorbing, Edgy, Intelligent

See it if you enjoy experimental theater in unconventional spaces where a car is driven into the space and there is a cute robot. Great acting also.

Don't see it if you don't like contemporary art or weird risk tasking theater. It's a short play, but you might be bored if you don't like poetic works.
