    This play has great bones but pacing was off and the actors often seemed under energized. I don’t wan to give anything away but the title is very misleading.

    Cute show! The screaming drunk lady was hilarious. With some editing and development this show has great potential!

    Entertaining! Some good comedic moments. The ending was definitely a surprise!

    A lovingly funny and poignant homage to the importance of “little” theaters in communities large and small and the need to support them. While somewhat rough at the edges, its heart is solid as gold. Well worth seeing.

    Actors, booze and shock collars. Snappy pacing and some good dialogue. No programs out so I can’t name the actors- but Marian, Marietta and Maxi were my favorites for their comedic timing. Worth 45 minutes of your time.

    What a funny & entertaining show. The cast was amazing & totally committed to their roles. The only way it could have been better was if the actors shared their drinks with the audience. BRAVO!

    Funny and entertaining! Wished there was a second act!

    This was a wonderful, quirky comedy–not the laugh-a-minute type, but one based on the individual traits of the various characters. In short, this is what fringe is all about–the sort of play you won’t see at the Music Hall or the Rep. The acting is excellent, and the script is coherent and leads to a satisfying ending. This is definitely a Fringe highlight.

    A situational mystery where we discover along with the characters what is going on and why they are present. Filled with cheesy lines I couldn’t help but laugh at due to the well-executed comedic timing. Full use of the space and sound enhances the show. Unfortunately the plot was a bit anti-climatic and left me wanting something more substantial. Lots of wasted potential.

    Very entertaining, kept me laughing all the time! And actors were very engaged in the show ! Will be seeing again

    Lots of fun. Actors were well cast. The dialogue was zippy and funny. Wished it had a second act.

    With a strange (i.e. very Fringy) script, the story follows a group of diverse characters who are invited to a play and end up trying to figure out who is behind the charade and why. There were some very funny moments as the actors skillfully play each role and complement each other well. It seems like it might go in a dark direction (as the victims are forced to wear shock collars) but turns out to be more lighthearted in tone. All in all, it’s a pleasant 45-minute diversion from reality.

    Talented actors, but the script was kind of lame. Some of it was mildly amusing.
