See it if Fan of Ayckbourn, enjoy this play, want to see how a real British company handles it, enjoy acerbic comedy
Don't see it if You expect elaborate sets & lighting, don’t like imported shows, have trouble within men, not a fan of slapstick or pun-like humor
Also Not a lot new here, but always learn something as part of this....
See it if you are an Ayckbourn fan and enjoy English humor, farce and comedy, with an underlying darkness and social commentary; less than great stage
Don't see it if you dislike the above and prefer musicals; need elaborate staging to bring a show to life.
See it if you like "in your face" not always funny farce, good acting, class conflict, difficult inter-relationships over time & long plays.
Don't see it if you dislike 2 1/2 Hr. plays, farce that often falls "flat" & sets that don't meet the requirements of the play's themes.
See it if A devout Ayckbourn fan; it’s otherwise a slow 2-hour plus slog of not-quite-farce nor dramedy. May have worked in ‘72 but hasn’t aged well.
Don't see it if Expecting quick wit, pace or the usual rhythm of British farce.
See it if you're a fan of Ayckbourn and want to a low budget slower version of one of his earlier works.
Don't see it if you're expecting a top-level production. it's done very slowly and cheaply and isn't firing on all cylinders.
See it if You want to see talented actors in a sub par English farce. Very dated and not very funny.
Don't see it if You want a farce with bite. Not one of the playwrights best.
See it if Think that you can fully understand the British humor from 70th.Good, but very grotesque and clownish acting.
Don't see it if Too long. Prefer light comedy.
See it if You like British humor. A mixture of odd humor, satire and a jab at social/class structure in our society.
Don't see it if You’re not ready to see it more for its historical relevance than for its sheer entertainment value.
See it if you have 2 1/2 hours to spend with 3 couples dealing with holiday despair, nervousness, alcoholism set decades ago with some physical humor.
Don't see it if you want great comedy - here it is mostly clownish acts, or you want to delve into characters over three annual gatherings. It went nowhere.
See it if you like a story about marital and social relationships. Some of the dialogue is quite witty and the second act is the best.
Don't see it if you like a straight drama or a beautiful set. This show needs a better set since it is part of the show.This stage is too small for good set
See it if Love all Ayckbourn & have been wishing for a revival. This one is rife with misogyny, alcoholism played for laughs, depression, mean-spirit.
Don't see it if 3 yrs, 3 separate stories, same characters, social standing looked at but not addressed. Confusing story arc.
