Pretty good!
10 October 1999 | by RosalieBustingMyBowlsSee all my reviews

This is a very funny play that i thoroughly enjoyed watching. It's really funny but makes you think at the same time. Our school is doing this play and I can't wait! I am an understudy for Mrs Kirby, it should be really fun! Everyone should see this funny play!
