This is a very funny play about social status and social climbing. Two of the three couples advance in life in opposite directions, with the rich falling apart and the middle class getting richer. Some of the sight gags are just hilarious. I...continued

This play was pretty disappointing. Really amateur--more like something you'd see at a community theater. The set was not professional-theater-looking at all. I got the impression that the actors were poorly directed, not poor actors. I felt sorry...continued

The performance was long due to two 15-minute intermissions. Other than that, it was very impressive play. I therefore strongly recommend it. The play takes place in the kitchens of three couples on Christmas eve over a three-year time period. ...continued

The second act was the most successful. I did laugh out loud several times throughout the show.

We went to this play with no particular expectations, but all three of us were laughing out loud which is unusual for us. The actors were very credible, I grew up in England and recognized the "types". There were lots of messages about social...continued

A great farce spectacularly well done. The actors were superb. But it really IS a farce, and if you don't like that kind of theater, I'm not sure ow much you'll enjoy this.

Alan Ayckbourn's Absurd Person Singular is probably his most well known play, a sort of theatre of the absurd/farce take on 70s/80s Britain. This style of comedy isn't for everyone, but if it's your thing, this is a very funny piece and a solid...continued

It was not very good at all. If it was dramatic, only the older gentlemen was a good actor. If it was a comedy, it was not funny. The staging was so involved for such a short time on stage. Watching that going up was more interesting than the...continued

First act felt very dated and not funny. Second act was very funny and more interesting. Third act did a good job of tying all the character threads together.

Superficial meaningless play about nothing. The actors are good but their efforts could not compensate the emptiness of the play.

The play was great with a bonus of $5 validated parking at a close by garage. Goldstar is so easy to use - we like a lot!

Great cast! Loved the storyline. I have not laughed so hard at a play in a long time. It is worth seeing. We showed up a few minutes late and got seated in the front row. Couldn't ask for a better deal. The venue was great and close to some...continued

Very good acting but didn't like the story. Act 3 was particularly boring.

Great performances by all the actors. The play itself is a funny and biting commentary about a changing economic and social world in '70's England that can be seen as universal, though the third act makes a turn into a strange, eerie world that...continued

The cast did an excellent job of conveying the physical, farcical humor of this play. Their timing was spot-on, and the sets conveyed the nuances of class and period very well. The verbal humor was often lost because many of the actors seemed to...continued
