While parts of it were well done and the basic premise of the play is fascinating, the play needs a good redrafting, to make it tighter, and the delivery of the lines needs much work. I was a bit dissappointed with it. On another note, I find it ironic that the play was written by a woman, given that the play is quite sexist. But maybe the play reflects her lived experience in the writing 'business'.
