Allow plenty of time to find parking. Theater has a very small lot that is hard to find.

Some humor, some touching moments. The twists in the story line kept you alert, tho sometimes a challenge to follow. The acting was superb. Great staging. An interesting play to discuss after. Many poignant points.
