Review from Joy

This was a fresh portrayal of the view of the Civil War and how we can do better when we actually listen to what others have to say about this and life events in general!

Review from Deborah or Robert Durst

This was a very funny & interesting play. It really makes you think and examine your opinions on the topic. Sometimes things aren't as they seem as you see in the characters. Had a GREAT time as always at Aurora!!

Review from Charlotte

I give this play three stars. It starts out slow, so much so that I was planning to leave at intermission if it had not picked up. It did pick up and got MUCH better. Funny and thought provoking.
