Clever, Resonant, Somewhat contrived

See it if You like family and human psychology. You like Stockard Channing - her acting is best thing about the play. You like revisting 60's & 70's.

Don't see it if You like plays that flow. Direction seemed to make it be somewhat slow and too careful to be theatrically done well.
