The concept and writing were the best parts of this show. Kudos to John for his hard work and obvious love of the written
word. Loved it so much I wanted to hear more of it. I was sitting house center and was disappointed in some of the staging as it made it more difficult to hear the dialogue. The actors were often being obscured or placed so that they were forced to upstage themselves in direct address. Many line endings were drown out by bells and delivered too quickly or were trailing off. Directing for/Perfoming in the thrust can be challenging and with a few corrections the dialogue would have been better appreciated by the audience as a whole. As it was, we all heard different parts well and missed others completely. A show this clever deserves more.
