A low-budget production of Acts 1 & 4 of the play, but has moments of real insight and feeling. A great bargain.

See or read the original before adventuring into any "modern" adaptations of this play. The acting was weak and the flow of Acts was frustrating (some were on video and some were acted out live). Video quality was extremely poor.
Acts were oddly...continued
