Customer Reviews

Chaitanya Agrawal ,

Fresh and different

Oscar Wilde,a humorous man, with the ability to twist a story suddenly at any time. He is also pretty good at suspense.

Predictable and pedestrian

A predictable plot from the very first act,
offers very few opportunities for genuine surprise. Not at all hilarious, have very little content that may amuse only a person with a simple disposition. A play you will surely not miss reading.

G. CS ,

Perfectly womderful!

The wild twists of the plot will have you gasping and laughing. A must read!
