“This is a chef’s special, a deliciously funny and occasionally dramatically-daring concoction of a play.”
British Theatre Guide
“The comedy in Stefan Escreet’s slick production compliments not-so- funny cultural issues, especially the immigrant experience of prejudice and the still-powerful pull of family ties in Bangladesh.”
