Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Great writing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you enjoy short takes on the subject, some funny, some serious, well presented in a lively and demanding performance by four actors.

Don't see it if you have difficulty with accents - I lost some meaning not being able to catch every word. Lighting is harsh. You want a linear play.

Don't see it if British/Irish/Welsh/Cockney/American accents bother you. Each actress does one or more of these as a reflection of the individual on stage. Read more
