    We loved the staging of the piece and were very impressed visually. But we both had trouble understanding the dialogue. The actors had such very strong accents. Really I think we missed about half to two thirds of what they were saying, so therefore difficult to get the full story.

    Amazing show

    I thought it was massively irresponsible to have a drawn out brutal rape scene, offstage or not. It was gratuitously long, and created an inescapable, triggering enrivonment for viewers.

    Excellent play depicting life in India generations gone. Highlighting current issues of rape and murder repeating itself.And how rich and influential families get away from murder charges. All the actors did their part well. Particularly the newcomer Paul.

    It was a very powerful play. Good acting, this play is not for the faint hearted. It left me disturbed.

    Certain actors dialogues were not very clear Missed what they said quite a bit. Not sure it was due to sound issues but it certainly needs looking into.

    Brilliant script, performed well supported by effective set design. Soni Razdan's performance was on point.

    It was a great show with an excellent plot twist. But in areas it was lacking pace, and there was too much shouting in certain parts, especially between the two mother's. The scene would've been more effective if there was less loud shouting.

    Funny, harrowing and anything in between. Highly recommended.
