    A really interesting evening. Fascinating orchestration and simple but effective staging. Like a lot of new writing 15 minutes shorter would have made it even stronger as it sagged towards the end. Singing great by all six singers.

    Fantastic. The production brought out the feelings of someone that has clinical depression. Music complimented the action and text perfectly. Loved that the orchestra was above the set .

    Not seen the play but from this performance my sense is that the stunning musical treatment only added to what is a profoundly moving and powerful peace of Drama. I long to see it/hear it again
