I was not expecting this much drama. It was an outstanding production. The stage set was clever, the acting got better and better as the play moved along. I can recommend the play without hesitation.

Well executed play with excellent actors that made you believe you were in the 1940's war time. A good look at pre-civil rights military segregation.
