This was a very fascinating story which kept me wondering what would happen next. The actors were fitting of their roles, and did a believable job getting the plot to move along. The music and the lighting fit the story plot perfectly. The Factory Theatre is this cool intimate venue which is a hidden gem in Boston's South End. I would highly reccomend seeing this production.
