I am curious that there are very few comments available on Goodreads about this play. Others have commented adequately about the story, summarizing that which I need not repeat.

I do want to comment about some of the play's architecture. The playwright uses an interesting technique often found in film scriptwriting: That of set-ups and callbacks - early in the story, little actions, small bits of dialog are introduced that seem odd and not so significant that you would demand to know what they re
A poignant little story with interesting characters, and not really all that much to say.
Funny and touching
