This was filmed in a warehouse using only mobile phones!
The cast are superb, with special mentions to Steve Connelly and Emma Morgan.
You are transported back to a bygone era with this film/play hybrid.
The direction is well handled and it's superbly edited. The sound is a little lacking in places, but that can be forgiven as the pluses outweigh the very minor minuses.
To complete this, under covid restrictions was a miracle of the will of Vertigo productions.
