Outstanding. This play is as fresh and thought-provoking as when I first found it many years ago. It wittily enterains even as it tugs the heart. The characters are fully wrought, the dialogue natural, often droll. The underlying lessons aren't underlined, but leave one thinking about the consequences of choices. Read it with pleasure. Then look for a stage production.
