My overall impression

This show was more than I had hoped for. The actors where amazingly developed in their characters and brought depth to the already rich dialogue. The costumes where really cohesive, bringing the story’s characters together into a futuristic, steam-punk, three penny opera. The sound really worked for the story, perhaps reminding us of a dark, strange, future. The richness of the script reminds you that you are watching a play, in a good way, through the use of rhyme, meter, song and style. It seemed a little long for the festival, though it seems like it could run longer on its own. Looking forward to future work from this troupe.
