Review by: Justin Emmett

This effort by Russel Niessen is a great example of an introductory fringe play that borrows from pop Psychology. Dabbing into the dark art of musicals, the story of two characters who may or may not fall in love in a mental asylum.

A young effort by a talented group of performers- the costume design, and creative implementation of props maintains the tone of a suicidal storyline written for the young and impressionable.

The subject matter was larger than the story that carried it.
