“Full of wit … Marcus Davis and Alex Fisher are fresh-faced and likable.” —Chicago Reader (highly recommended)

“On the stage it’s a breathless whirlwind of scandal, love, treachery, lust, and revenge, with hardly a moment’s pause…You’ll especially enjoy this play if you’re a fan of Dickens, Shakespeare or Fielding.” —_Chicago Theater Beat _(three stars)
