We saw this play at the inside theatre. Good thing as it was very hot(90+) This Genet play is typical of his plays. Well done but very stressful. A good play if you like drama. Not if you're looking for humor.

You can check their website for ticket prices. Tickets cost less in September. Whatever the price it is some of the best theater you will ever see.
