Excellent acting, set, direction. The conclusion was a bit confusing.

The acting was wonderful and it is not a story that you have seen before! The actors and director and produces all came out for the talk back which made it even more interesting. Great cast all with Indian backgrounds which made it more authentic!

The title has multiple meanings. Very funny for the first hour or so, then it starts to slide gradually into darkness. I think the script might benefit from a few tweaks, but overall I rate the writing a work of genius. Extremely talented cast...continued

“Surging with its own comic resilience, the play is a minor marvel.” —The Independent
