allows us to take a look at humorous side of some very serious matters. In doing that, it also allows us to question the values and morals of today. All in all, this play enables us to participate in an almost believable scenario. The characters are vividly drawn and conceptualized; it is very easy to feel for the individual characters. A wonderful twisting story that captures the imagination, I would readily watch this play again.
