My overall impression

WHAT IF Aviatrix Amelia Earhart didn’t die in the mid-Pacific in 1937 but lived on a desert island? OK: I’ll bite! BIG mistake. This cost me 16-1/2 cents per minute, and I regret every penny. Is this the worst play ever written?—-Well, it’s a contender, and gets the performances it deserves. Worst Supporting Performance of the 2015 Festival: Ramona Creel, who sits onstage during someody else’s dialogue scene cranking a Very Loud “cricket” noisemaker for what seems like an hour. (ARE there crickets on a deserted island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean? Nobody seems to have researched THAT, either!)
