Fun play.  Excellent dialogue. Opens with conversation that hooks you immediately, and then keeps
on with the humor.  The part of Burt is fascinating, and great fun for  both actor and audience.  We used it as Readers' Theatre and it was well received.  Staging would be very easy.

Great three peopled show!  Lots of laughs and humor, great story line.  Not only great characters for the actors, but also a lot of fun for the audience.  Lots to think about after seeing/reading this one!
