We liked the play for the small cast size with enough quality parts to give both
advanced and beginning performers featured time on stage.  Figuring out how
to show the auditorium entrance was one of our greatest set design challenges.
The show is some what dated because of the ideas of having an off stage phone
which players must go use.  We cast a person as the dead body for the show
and that was great fun.  The show is also very short, so we performed it with a
night of one acts.
