What I liked

Every aspect of this performance blew me away. The writing was incredible, strong performances from every cast member, clearly exceptional directing – nothing was lacking. I was gripped 30 seconds in and it didn’t let up. I was so impressed with this shows ability to hold my honest attention for 55 minutes straight – That’s rare these days, for anything, for me at least. I honestly would see it again just to pick up on the more nuanced parts of the conversation that I’m sure I missed. Well done!!!

What I didn't like

I’m sure a better critic than I could find things to improve upon – I’ve got nothing. This play was great. I wish the other showings weren’t all sold out because my friends want to go see it now!

My overall impression

Wow…! I saw this show last night and I can’t get it out of my head, I’ve been thinking and talking about it with friends all day today. To call it thought provoking is accurate, but feels like a cheap description of something so well written and carefully considered. With 5 cast members and 55 minutes they managed to meaningfully touch on every angle of a complex issue that is, and has always been present in every society, and perhaps closer to our personal lives than we would like to know.
