Starring longtime improvisers Raffi Feghali, Fidaa Ghibreel and Ali Dawi, the 60-minute sketch was activated by a single audience suggestion and was touted to be completely spontaneous and unscripted – performed for the first and last time.Over the course of the show the three actors skillfully played around 15 characters, shifting among roles, changing accents and mannerisms, without once confusing who was playing whom.The use of spotlights made up for the lack of set design and were used to divide the stage by location and time – as when Samia was reading a love letter that was being written by Sammy at one end of the stage and voiced by Jameel at the other. The montage was effective and immersive, the three actors adding their pieces once catching onto what the other was after. According to Dawi, they will stage the only Arabic-language performance there.Sunday's chosen topic was taken in stride by the players, with Dawi noting that the weirder the title, the happier the actors were.The play was full of laughs, with the actors clearly enjoying themselves as much as the audience.
