I was late to the game, only seeing the Knavish Hedgehogs for the first time last year. Please learn from my mistake and see them sooner rather than later.

The script is Shakespeare so it's rock solid. Every actor shines and has a moment to sparkle. The staging is tight and clean — this is simply wonderful.

Ninety minutes felt like a fraction of that time.

I don't think I've ever laughed so hard watching this play.- Bradley Sawatzky

There are some solid performers absent from last year, but the new bloods hold their own. But I have to single out someone — the comic timing of Miranda Baran is an absolute delight. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard watching this play.

This is a sure thing.
