    I saw the first play, and I thought it was TERRIBLE!
    It reminded me of "Waiting for Godot", but it was about a much more trivial subject, Smartphones. The author had just one thing to say, about how they have effected our lives, and he kept repeating it, over and over again. I got it the first time.

    Really wonderful. Was only able to see two of the plays on Tuesday but they were both really good- the writing, directing and acting.
