The actors were all very good (one fumbled a few lines, but given the number of words and the pattern of delivery, particularly in the first scene, I don't judge too harshly). But the real star was the play itself. So creatively written in both...continued

I really enjoyed this production. It kept my interest throughout and had me reflecting on some the points they bring up. The actors were incredible and had a lot to synchronize, especially the FIRST act. Very thoughtful concept, very creative,...continued

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.

Interesting play by the author of "When the Rain Stops Falling". Four actors play multiple roles which often either intersect or propel forward within the storyline. Sometimes it is initially hard to figure out each character but stick with it. ...continued

This was utterly enjoyable. Extremely well-staged and acted, with a lot of challenging "dual" dialog dependent on timing that was well executed. Highly recommended. Also my first time at Theater Wit which is a great venue.

Superb production of a very interesting play! We went because we loved When the Rain Stops Falling by the same Australian playwright, and we weren't disappointed. Staging and performances can't be faulted. The four actors are really too young...continued

Opening night jitters and an difficult material which included an ill conceived final act marred an otherwise solid performance by the actors. Though the theme of the play was captivating the play could benefit from a rewrite.
