What I liked

The actor who plays the professor in question does a great job of keeping us guessing. Is he a kindly old teacher who is just misunderstood, even sympathetic, or is he truly a monster? The final confrontation with the student is a standout scene.

What I didn't like

The beginning was a little slow.

My overall impression

An intense, thought provoking play about what happens when a student finds out a tenured play is a holocaust denier. An insightful look at how people use causes to define themselves, and the difficult choices they have to make when shining a light on the darkest parts of humanity may just draw more attention to it.
