On one hand, this script is dated and the husband and wife are mostly unlikeable stereotypes. On the other hand, the play is rarely dull and raises issues between men and women that still probably exist in many places around the world. "Slam The Door Softly" is a product of it's time (1970) - at least in America and the First World - and although I disagreed with a lot of what Luce writes and debates here, it is an interesting modern reworking of Ibsen's "A Doll's House".

Clare Boothe Luce was an American editor, playwright, social activist, congresswoman, journalist, and ambassador. Witty, perceptive, and determined, she was also a prominent figure in New York society circles.

Perhaps Luce's best known work was the comedic play The Women (1936).
