What I liked

Things I liked:
The script is super strong, the Schrodigers cat loop is fantastic and the interactive sections and magic is great and works wit the storybeats. The ending is fantastic.

You do a really good job of explaining time travel, simply, without the story moving forward.

What I didn't like

Things that can be improved (I saw opening night -SPOILER ALERT):

Sound Design – could do more with this and heightening the inventor theme opening and coming up with a ‘Time Jump’ sound.

Lighting – could heighten the ‘Time Jumps’ to help delineate at what point in time was.

Acting – so need to heighten the farce of the German inventor. He is the one who has screwed up, and risks losing everything.The 18th century psychic is finding solutions, when it should be the German inventor trying to correct what he has done.

My overall impression

Highly inventive comedic farce. Utterly brillant – Fawlty Towers meets Primer.
