Johnny - ★★★★★ “The theatrical elements comprising this work are intriguing. Here, lighting is an essential tool of the storyline, switching on and off to create leaps in moments, hours or days. The actors remain on stage while incorporating or cutting to different scenes, and the production flows beautifully.”
