The story of "Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories" is what I came away with most. The more hints the script gave about Josephine, the more interesting the "mystery" about her became. I thought the final twist at the end of the script was also enjoyable.

The performances also struck me, as all the actors had to pantomime or use minimal props to suggest not only location and action, but also character, when they re-enacted Kipling's stories.

Finally, the costumes were fun -- very much period pieces, which brought me into the play's setting.
