We walked out. Worst, incomprehensible accents I have ever heard... and they kept changing as though they were portraying schizophrenic episodes. To make it even more unintelligible the characters spoke over each other al la "The View". Friends...continued

Good acting, but an unsatisfying script. The first act didn't develop the strength of these women, and the second act was difficult to follow.

In the first half there were too much talking over each other that you dont know which character you are suppose to follow. At one point there were 4 people talking at the same time in 2 conversations. Also there were some random burst of words...continued

The acting was excellent - could not have been better. But I felt the play itself was very disjointed. There was no connection between the first act (where ghosts of historical women that were oppressed were supposed to lead alternative models of...continued

Tony Kuhner says that he is very fond of Churchill's "talking over" technique and is using it in his popular play "The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures."

A few good performances but lackluster direction. The script hasn't aged well and this production does nothing to make it relevant.

The acting was good, but the content/story was pretty weird. I had no connection with the first half -- couldn't even figure out what was going on. The rest was okay. Overall, would not recommend it.

Overall I really enjoyed this performance, if I was picky I'd say the first act could do with some tightening up. I'd highly recommend it though, looking forward to future performances.
