    I was totally engrossed. The acting is wonderful and the cast and the script great. I even had a tear in my eye on two occasions with the authenticity of the emotion portrayed. Well worth seeing if you have any interest in WW2 on any level.

    This play was superb in every respect: the script, the acting, the staging. I haven't been so mesmerized by a topic in years and am pressuring my friends to catch whatever performances they can get tickets for.
