Laugh your way into understanding human history

This clever play takes on the serious subject of past pain and unforgiveness. Through his use of humor, Alexander McCall Smith addresses how "reasonable and educated" people can become sucked into prejudice and unforgiveness. It is respectful of people's hurts while still challenging them to move forward.

A nice little "breather".

The accents were delightful and the atmosphere was enjoyable as a nice palate cleanser between fuller and longer dramatizations of the author's work.
