    Wow This play is full of surprises To start off, there is not one really likable character in this one act play Despite that fact, you are pulled into their story and care about what happens to the characters Allusion is used heavily in this play, but it is turned on its head And you will not see the ending coming It is utterly mind blowing I highly recommend this.
