Absorbing, Clever, Enchanting, Great acting, Great staging

See it if you're looking for brilliant new theatre that is as wild and mysterious as it is entertaining.

Don't see it if you are looking for something lighter. The play deals with some heavy topics and plot lines, despite its wonderful use of humor.
