Creative, Slow, Pensive, Artistic, Quirky

See it if Talented performances by the cellist and clown-dancers. Creative interpretations of the poems. Humorous and a bit morbid.

Don't see it if I guess I wasn’t a big fan of the poetry. After a while, I found it boring. Especially when it got existentialist & self-deprecating.

Don't see it if you are looking for a play. Read more
