Enchanting, Delightful, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Intelligent

See it if Know Kathleen Chalfont commands any stage. Like real life dialogue , thought provoking play, are OK each character not fully developed.

Don't see it if You have to measure this against Ruhl's other works. Don't have patience for dialogue..and don't know Kathleen Chalfont.
