"If good theatre includes revealing hidden secrets of human experience, showing us we are not alone and/or taking us to places we've never been (and may not want to visit in reality), thereby expanding our awareness of ourselves and each other in challenging yet life-affirming – and safe – ways, then SHOT BRO: Confessions of a Depressed Bullet delivers in spades".
