Act One: The Bread
Act Two: The Condiments
Act Three:  The Meat

Ever walk into a Deli and see a Sandwich that looks so good and fresh only to disappoint?

On first bite the play is incredibly fresh and enjoyable. Downright hilarious actually. Unfortunately the more you bite into this sandwich the tougher it is to chew. After all of the comedic taste in the first act it really gets stale rather quickly with almost none of the taste of the first act. There is no real tie in or complimentary taste in the three acts.
