Delightful, Entertaining, Romantic, Slow, Great writing

See it if You want to see a romantic story during war time about two people from different backgrounds and how they come together and fall in love

Don't see it if You want to see a production that moves very fast. You are not interested in a love story during war time. You like big productions.

"Beautifully performed, finely written, and impeccably presented...Hagins has crafted an involving and effective take of a perennial scenario that captures the nostalgic essence of wartime films and plays of the past...Cohler and Goss have great sensual and romantic chemistry that’s frequently exhibited...Hagins has arguably overthought his play as it contains a lamentable detour...The digression mars but doesn’t obliterate the play’s considerable accomplishments."

"All these veteran theater people have put their prodigious energy into bringing us a play about anti-fascism and getting to know the other...Such themes strike me as quite timely, and will give you an hour and forty minutes of engrossing theater that just flies by...The charming process of getting to know each other is convincingly directed by Janet Bentley...This play shows that, even in wartime, you can rebuild from the bottom up."
