What I liked

The actors did a terrific job

What I didn't like

Character development and world development

My overall impression

The actors of this play did a very good job with the script they were given – they were very funny and knew how to work the comedy aspect. However, i wasnt the biggest fan of the overall story. The suspension of disbelief was just way too suspended. I didnt really care for the characters, and i didn’t really understand the story world that was presented. It has a lot of potential but it just didnt hit the mark quite yet. Taking some extra time for the audience to find a relatable character amd get more background on what is going on would really help boost the story.
