Well executed, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if Well done, interesting, thought provoking. Some intriguing ideas.

Indulgent, Excruciating, Disappointing, Cliched, Banal

See it if If you want an audio that talks about whitey being racist, Pres Trump racist blah blah. The farmhouse, elite liberal whites.

Don't see it if Story is weak and subject matter is getting tiring. Trump stole election? Please. Audio sounds like same people.

Entertaining, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Great writing

See it if you enjoy exposure to varying points of view on current social and political issues. A well-produced audio play that lets you envision all.

Don't see it if you do not like political or social discussion and opposing points of view or if you are not up to listen to a 2 1/2 hour presentation.

Confused, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if You want to understand "reasons" for the triumph of "Trumpism"

Don't see it if Multiple story lines that never tie together make any coherent argument obscure at best. Read more

Slow, Indulgent, Ambitious

See it if well written audio play. entertaining but long.

Don't see it if need more of a story in a shorter (much shorter) period of time. Seems to have been dragged out to too many hours

Resonant, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Absorbing, Ambitious

See it if Washburn's audio play regarding events around & about Trump's election is a stunner with an great vocal ensemble via Ali's taut direction

Don't see it if However, it's also preaching to the choir Also a visual medium would bring the fantasia elements to greater life as well providing clarity
