As an exercise in excessive stage direction with particular attention being paid to making it almost unreadable in published play format, it's a brilliant success. As a play, well, at least it's just one act.

I read this book because it's a Free ebook on an app I have. It was a very quick read which was nice and I think this was the first 1 act play that I've read. It works well as a one act play but I can see it as a multi act, longer play as well.
One thing I didn't like was the amount of description of the characters facial expression, movements and actions. This made the flow of reading the play rather choppy.

A short one-act that, despite the succinct subject of the title (it is, in fact, literal; no metaphors here), carries a surprising amount of emotional weight.
