See it if you want to see a simple two-hander where everything is spelled out for you (and you don't mind the Nazi subject matter).

Don't see it if a play about Nazi ideology is going to make you upset. Read more

Relevant, Profound, Intense, Great acting, Dizzying

See it if You want a crash course (via a play) on how easy it can be to follow hateful ideologies

Don't see it if You find the "banality of evil" too triggering (seeing a Nazi salute even just on a stage can be a lot)
