What I liked

What I liked about the production? A good many of things in fact but I shall only focus on a few. One would be the pacing of the show. It did not lag, it did not race but kept a good speed that kept you intrigued. The show was not to short nor was it too long but the exact about of time to experience a moment.

Next would be the relationships, the chemistry the performers had was true and honest.

And last but certainly not least was the dialogue. The script so cleverly worded. War, PTSD, a soldiers memories all extremely serious topics that the average joe couldn’t possibly know. But the dialogue eases you in and brings you in on a brief experience of a day in the life of a solider trying to come back into civilian life and the moments that haunt him. At times one may be fueled with rage, confusion, tears but you are not left to dwell in such heart arch, there are bits of laugher and brotherhood that lift the spirits.

Whether you believe in war or not I felt this had nothing to do with that. But a chance for a solider to be heard. I do hope this story leaves audiences with having the utmost respect for those who truly give up everything (mind, body, soul and at times faith and life) to serve an entire country.

My overall impression

Overall Impression….Outstanding.
Smooth and clever dialogue. Brutal and honest.
If the mind is open and willing to listen one is left with a feeling of understanding. This show I felt was not a time to judge war but to truly listen to a solider, a chance for a solider to be heard. I do hope this production leave audiences with having the utmost respect for those who truly give up everything (mind, body, soul and at times faith and life) to serve an entire country. Thank you to the cast and crew for telling this story and to those within the production who have served this country thank you from the bottom of my heart, thank you for your serve!

A Solo Show with Jokes...and Espionage

Saurabh Kikani was the nerdiest, most awkward teen in the world. In 1996, he was in a summer program at Oxford where he happened to see the movie Mission:Impossible, and his life changed forever. This is a solo show with jokes...and espionage.
