The acting and casting were excellent. The two intermissions made for a long play.

Great story and gripping play in a comfortable venue. I little long (with two intermissions) but held my interest throughout.

Had an excellent time, as usual, at Raven. It's a lengthy show--three acts--but it didn't feel bloated or slow. Lots of laughs and I didn't cry but I came close.
