What I liked

I liked how the play kept the viewer guessing and exploring the human desires for each of its players.
I also liked how the play kept the viewer engaged. It was only in the last scenes that we really find out the truth of the its characters and their individual stories.
I love the use of the funny Squirrel and the talented dancer (Richard Rennie) as a giant squirrel. It was a great scene breaker.

What I didn't like

I would add just one small “action” for Gethin’s private yet serendipitous “joyful” surprise when he meets his long lost love Charlotte. Even something as small as secretly looking back at Charlotte or a staring for admiration, or becoming tongue tied or anything small, because later when he confesses in the last scene about how he had regrets and had tried to look for her, I can believe it more.
May be I am wrong and I missed the dept of the scene when I first watched it. But may be not ??? Anyway good luck with the play.

My overall impression

A very well written and very well performed play. It is very funny and not just in parts, but in its entirety. The humor of this play, the intelligence, the perks, plus the use of the entire space in the theater as a stage, really involves a viewer. There were constant surprises generating constant laughter. It was a very entertaining play to watch.
