This is a wonderful play, expertly performed, with a fine cast, great set (kudos to the director and set manager). Thanks to Raven for reviving this play, which holds up very well indeed. I encourage everyone over 25 to see this play!

We did NOT enjoy this performance....
We really did not enjoy the actors.
We left at intermission.
The people at the theater could not be more accommodating & everyone was wonderful
to us and our special needs.
Thanks for that.
