Twelve short plays in THREE HOURS, ranging from "cleverly crafted" to "what were they thinking." Some excellent performances by very talent actors, especially Kiki Abba, McKenna Turner, and Daniel Reaume. More about style than substance.

Double XX fest gave an evening of interesting performances. The plays ranged from drama to comedy. Actors knew their stuff. All the plays were written and directed by women so kudos to Stone Soup for promoting women in theatre!

Yes, some good work, some bad work, but the real killer was the Three Hour running time. I felt abused as an audience member by that choice.
