Thought-provoking, Clever, Confusing

See it if You wanna watch something different that makes you think afterwards. The scenes in an academic setting were thought provoking.

Don't see it if You want that satisfaction of having all figured out by the end. At least in my case, it was a bit confusing. Maybe I am not smart enough...

Absorbing, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Clever

Don't see it if you want a straightforward narrative, find interwoven stories and connections confusing, aren't interested in how we believe what we believe Read more

“Jonathan Spector’s latest play slots perfectly into the Hampstead’s intellectual programming, providing one of the best examples of the specific brand of theatre it has become known to produce. While it won’t be for everyone, it’s a remarkable work, tackling big philosophical, political, and psychological ideas in a small-scale production.”

“The acting, and the technological dimension of the play, are effective but unsubtle. All that said, Spector’s play is a serious piece of work that made me think, and the issues it raises will stay with me.”

“...this is theatrically playful with scenarios and time frames segueing in witty ways...Although the pieces don’t fully come together, it is so invigorating a brainteaser that it is more than worth our puzzling.”

The Times (UK)
December 20th, 2023

“The American playwright Jonathan Spector... presents a dense yet thoroughly entertaining meditation on cognitive theory and how we tell stories about the past...Even if the time-travelling narrative is tangled, the director Chelsea Walker keeps things fizzing along in the confined space, while the multitasking cast of three juggle roles with mesmerising dexterity.”

“Though all these unrelated elements never quite cohere, the play is a stimulating, thought-provoking puzzle.”

"Thanks to the excellence of the staging and cast, it’s not remotely dull, but it doesn’t carry enough of an emotional payload to send you home feeling stimulated, either intellectually or emotionally."
