    Story
    "Excellent and highly recomnrnded."

    John Gielgud and Edith Evens are the only voices who convey the quintessential essence of the period. Such clarity of diction and professional acting.
    Wonderful performance.
    Thoroughly enjoyable.

    "Classic play"

    Short fun play with witty dialogue. However I found the voice of actors grating and rather old for the parts of young teenagers and mid 20 somethings.

    "Charming and very funny"

    I enjoyed this charming, funny and quirky short story. The major let down was the audio quality, I was constantly having to fiddle with the volume as characters were loud one minute and quiet the next. The sound is very poor quality. It sounds like a recording of a play which is great and something I usually like however whoever recorded this must have done it on their phone from the back of the theatre.
