Well worth the trek out of Fringe Central for this hidden gem. A surprisingly big play for one hour, with several rich character arcs and wonderfully modulated between comedy and pathos. The shared duet was especially moving.

What a wonderful production. The writing was sinewy and perceptive and the cast brought off a most amazing feat of tight acting. The musical backdrop was just right and the magically dissolving sugar cube theme most amusing.
