What I liked

One moment a rehearsal cube serves as a throne, the next, it is a chopping block for a beheading—totally bought it. Costumes and props are credible. Stage combat is meticulous and ambitious.

What I didn't like

I would have enjoyed free popcorn.

My overall impression

Violent, sexy, funny. If you don’t like what School of Night is doing here, there is something wrong with you. Ten good actors speak the speech, but even if you are completely deaf, you will still understand what is going on in, so clear is the directing and blocking. You cannot not understand what is happening.
