Intelligent, Slow, Clever

See it if you don't mind slow, talky shows with thick accents. This was one of the first virtual shows I saw. I thought they did well with the format.

Don't see it if you don't like the idea of a virtual show with the cast in different places but pretenting to be together. And not much happens, just talk.

Intelligent, Great writing, Great acting, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if YOU LOVE IRISH THEATER. THIS WAS WONDERFULLY STAGED AT THE IRISH REP IN PERSON AND TRANSFERRED TO ON-LINE VERY WELL. THE DISCONNECT WORKS

Don't see it if YOU ARE NOT A FAN OF IRISH DRAMA. THIS IS QUINTESSENTIALLY IRISH WITH THE CHARACTERISTIC SPEECH AND MANNERISMS WELL PORTRAYED. NO ACTION

Ghost stories in a rural bar setting

See it if you like ghost stories and Irish plays with lots of talk. Set in a rural bar, this is less scary than I was afraid it might be. Well done.

Don't see it if you dislike ghost stories, or find seances creepy.

Riveting, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You like Irish stories that take you on a journey of the mind and soul. Wonderful performances and brilliant writing.

Don't see it if You need to be in a theatre to appreciate a play. Not being a live show does diminish this play a small percentage.

Great acting, Riveting, Intense, Great writing, Absorbing

See it if McPherson's best play is given a 4 star digital production via O'Reilly's taut direction & a superb ensemble cast Spellbindingly creepy!

Don't see it if Very, very little to take issue with Sometimes the actors feel detached from the image / bar room but not often enough to harm

Riveting, Great acting, Great writing, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy Irish storytelling at its best. This virtual adaptation of the popular stage play really holds up!

Don't see it if you are tired of virtual theatre, though this one is done extremely well. The sets are green screened, which really added alot!
