What we thought

Loud CONFUSING fascinating

The swarms of teenage scholars present in the audience confirmed the significance that the moralistic tale of Edwardian greed and hypocrisy viewed from the 1940s has today.

Be sure to watch this expressionistic, enthralling and rigorously intelligent production.
