4.5 stars, which I'll round up because there wasn't anything significantly wrong with it. I'm not used to reading plays but this was more like reading a collection of short stories. There are five plays in this volume and I enjoyed them all. Sometimes the subject matter initially sounded a bit questionable, but soon developed in pleasing and heart-warming ways. A satisfying and light-hearted way of whiling away a few evenings. Warmly recommended.
