Clever, Ambitious, Absorbing, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if you like Netflix teenage movies. also, the acting is excellent, and the fact that it’s a solo performance doesn’t make the play boring

Don't see it if you don’t want to see a rather painful story about loneliness, death and mental disorders

A little slow, Heartbreaking, Funny, Relevant, Ambitious

See it if you enjoy a well-performed one-person show.

Don't see it if you need the most riveting show. It has moments of real impact and an earnestness throughout, but doesn’t quite connect as much as it wants. Read more

See it if You want to see something, I'd say really different. It's play format, with a single actor telling a story. Boring? NO! Captivating!

Don't see it if You may be uncomfortable with pronounced death, and separately, sexual abuse references.
