A crazy comedy about low lifes cavorting with the upper crust on the French Riviera. There are many twists and turns of the plot about people who are not what they seem to be.


"Hilarious comedy blends expertly ... surprises and complications at high speed." - Register

"Crackles with wit." - Anaheim Bulletin

"The most outlandish complications ... [are] carried off with flourish.... It becomes the thoroughly enjoyable task of the audience to find out which players are really the jewel thieves. The plot cannot be divulged without seriously robbing the playgoer of the fun of figuring out who is who and what they're up to.... A fun evening." - Daily Pilot

The premiere of this wacky expose of slick criminals on the French Riviera drew unanimous raves throughout Southern California.

Honestly, Now! had its world premiere at The Gem Theatre, in the Visual Arte Center of Garden Grove, California, on January 9, 1981.
