While the play itself was very interesting and dialogue heavy (Sorkin, of course), it was far too ambitious a project for this young community theater to pull off. I was impressed that they chose such a complex play. If you see a production from this group, go in remembering it is very amateurish. But they gave it their all and it's worth supporting a fledging group. The actors were clearly working very hard to do their best, but the director didn't seem to have any real theatrical training which greatly impacted the performers negatively. I've sadly seen high school productions better and more professionally directed. However, it's good to see community theater trying. You should also know that the chairs in the auditorium are old, broken-down, and very uncomfortable, and the venue doesn't seem to have any airconditioning so it was stuffy.
The show is recommended for those ages 14 and older, due to some adult language.
