Captivating show! Loved the set. Great seats. David Cale is a genius! I enjoyed the performance so much that I immediately booked to go again when I got home!

This one man performance was thought provoking and highly entertaining. My favorite character was Lisa :)

This is a 1-man show featuring a series of related sketches and characters that involve passion and the sea. Most of the sketches are quite good, but some don't work so well. All in all, it's a fairly well done, cleverly constructed piece.
