"A top-notch revival...Part social satire, part melodrama, and part Ibsenesque problem play...The play combines raucous comedy scenes, overwrought tragic moments, and polemical discussions...Remarkably, the tonal fluctuations work within the precarious social and ethical world in which the play is set...There are some longueurs, but overall, the play is rich and compelling...A good deal of the play's success must be credited to Hardart and his excellent company of actors."
