Intense, Intelligent, Outstanding lead

See it if you like hard-hitting theater that works on all cylinders, smart script, bolt of energy direction, creative design & exceptional lead actor.

Don't see it if topics of drug & alcohol abuse are not your thing, or can't take loud music & other sensory-stimulating stage effects. But it's a must-see.

Thought-provoking, Profound, Must see, Intelligent, Great writing

See it if you like an insightful and intellectual drama. Would resonate to those who have disillusioned by reality.

Don't see it if you are sensory sensitive. There is a long sequence of flashing lights with loud noises. If you are not for a wordy play with sad themes.

Superb cast, Witty/clever dialogue, Loud, Portrays chaotic behaviour, Self destruction

See it if you like intense theatre. A certain amount of realism on the experience of being engulfed by one's addiction as an addict.

Don't see it if You don’t appreciate loud noise, bad language, the subject of addiction.
