Profound, Refreshing, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if This was an interesting play, an amateur reading letters re ww2.If you like this kind of play that remembers a family member.

Don't see it if could be slow at times, not to see if you do not like a play where a person talks about letters from family member.

Great writing, Ambitious, Charming, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if you like beautiful writing. Although most of the show is read from letters, the performer is most charming when he speaks to the audience.

Don't see it if being read to puts you to sleep. The letters are beautiful and well read but listening is a sort of "story time" before bed experience.
