The beginning is rich and infuriating in the right way, but as the play moves on the fierceness is left to aimlessness. Eminer rated it really liked it Jan 02, I find three noses ugly enough Iacques 14, Michael A. Want to Read saving….

Mishka Tchelidze rated it it was amazing Oct 28, To play them as clown shows actually undercuts their humour. It is reality that is seen as absurd, not artifice.
