Another amusing, clever play from one of the greatest playwrights of all time. I won't get too much into it, so as not to spoil the twists at the end of the play, but suffice it to say they are both hilarious and insightful. Although I don't like it quite as much as his two masterpieces (R+G Are Dead, Arcadia), you can clearly see where the brilliance for those later pieces comes from in this earlier work. It can be a little confusing at points--the dialogue/monologues often overlap--but all becomes much clearer as you get towards the end.
