    It was a wonderful production; and I must say it’s worth the while of any audience gathered to see it. It should however be given more publicity.

    I love the originality of the play. Indeed it was breath-taking as the actors gave their best and kept me speechless all through. The costume and entire setup was next to none. I’m glad I came.
