Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if you enjoy old plays done well. This was amateurish in all respects, the acting, sets, and costumes. I couldn't wait for it to be over.

Don't see it if Just don't see it. I usually love these restoration plays but this was awful. Read more

"Entertaining, replete with great staging, acting, and singing...The entire cast is well-versed and talented in their multiple roles...The cast also provides an a cappella soundtrack to one sword fight, and it is amazing to witness...The interaction was a clever way to set the tone of this play as it went on. Although the stage is small, the direction of the play makes sure none of it is wasted...Any fan of Farquhar’s work would do well to see this show."
