This Georgetown Gilbert & Sullivan Society venue should feel guilty for taking money from patrons.

I found the acting quite lacking and dull. I was bored and left during intermission. I have gone to high school plays that were much more interesting and entertaining.

This was an amateur production that was so bad we left at intermission. The subject matter was fine, if a bit racy; however, the play itself and the acting were just not up to par.

First act was well written , the second one was weak and lacked in meaning.. The cast was strong , but the play itself was lacking... A bit racy , for adults only.

Description

Directed by Jonathan Zucker

Caryl Churchill’s Obie-award winning carnivalesque satire, set first in 1879 Africa and then in 1979 London, follows the members of a British colonial family as they confront, manipulate, and unravel the absurdities of Victorian sexual and gender repression in the name of Queen and Country.

Due to adult language and themes, this show is not recommended for audience members younger than 13.
