The play was very ambitious, humorous and a little confusing. The overall experience of seeing a production set outside in this great theatre space is highly recommended. All seats are good and picnicking is encouraged.

Great performance. The actors were so talented and what a bunch a quick-change artists. The story is both funny and compelling. Run don't walk to this show.
