A wanna be musical without a single catchy song, based on the tragic end of Ernest Hemmingway. It sounds dodgy and failed consequently to impress at all. One felt deeply sorry for the actors having to put on a brave face.
It closed two weeks after opening deservedly due to devastating reviews from audience and critics.
