Great story of looking beyond your own back yard for your happiness. We always wonder - what if and many succumb to the pressure - this is human nature in the raw. Great acting - all cast members. Congrats all - very well done. The two hours flew...continued

Very enjoyable production. The main character, Kitty, showed a lot of talent. The chemistry between Kitty and Carl truly showed their deep friendship and understanding of each other. Very relate-able story line. Such is life! The stage setting...continued

Have to start with the cast. Excellent all, and most master the required English accents. This is a play at times comedic, at times emotionally challenging, with some arresting dialogue. You'll recognize these characters who are brought to life by...continued

Study in human nature. Entertaining and at times thought-provoking. Terrific acting by the entire cast. Actually cared about the characters.

Did not care for the British accents, could have relayed the same struggles and message without them. Enjoyed the reflection of each character upon their lives and the realization that life is what you make of it and that you are responsible for...continued

This was a very good play. The writing was sharp and very witty and even hard-hitting at points but completely relatable. All of the actors were excellent, especially the actress playing Kitty and the actor playing her friend's alcoholic...continued

Witty, dynamic, grounded [to THIS earth], at times quite honest (especially during the pas-de-deux with the "stranger" - as it may always be) - a nice incursion into the busy lives that we lead and which, at times, leave very little room to...continued

Well acted. Had lots of highs and lows. A little long. Ending lacked punch. Surprised that there was no after show discussion with it being a preview to a packed house. I would think the feedback would be invaluable to tighten up the production.

Enjoyable production from a reliable Chicago theater group. The play isn't groundbreaking, but it's well acted and has some clever, funny bits along with more serious moments. I'm glad I saw this one.

After the show, the audience was able to ask the actors questions which was awesome! They were personable and had some great "behind the scenes" stories for us.
