Well done - good story

I have to disagree with the other review posted here. The audio quality was just fine, and the whole production seemed very professional and well done to me. Perhaps it has been enhanced since the other review - not sure. In any case, I disagree with that assessment of the sound quality. Though it is true the accents don't seem right for the setting of the story, I think that is being overly pickym since the actors do a good job and are convincing. This story may not be everyone's cup of tea, butit isn't the terrible mess the other review makes out - at least not in my opinion.

I thought the story was interesting too and as a short story, found it entertaining.
