Mint Theater Company presents the very belated world premiere of Miles Malleson's 1933 "un-romantic comedy" about life in an open marriage, and the price of free love.... Read more

Stephen and Anne, blissfully happy for eight years, are committed to living up to their ideals. When Stephen, a writer who isn’t writing, begins to sink into a funk of unproductive moodiness, Anne encourages him to seek out a fresh spark. Can their marriage survive uncompromising generosity, sacrifice, and love? 'Yours Unfaithfully' was published in 1933 but never produced...until now.

Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Cliched, Dated, Arch

See it if British plays of manners are appealing, or if you want to see a discussion about how infidelity should not be necessarily be destructive.

Don't see it if Clearly dated pieces irritate you. This is for real theatre aficionados who appreciate the history of the craft.

Also What man has never constructed an argument defending infidelity as som... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Repetitive, Talky, Where are the accents?

See it if you're fascinated by 20th c plays as time capsules. W/ its discussion of open marriage, YU was ahead of its time, hence it was unperformed.

Don't see it if plays that are talk-talk-talk annoy you. I didn't find the acting convincing. These are snazzy Brits (lots of cricket talk) but no accents.

Also The Mint Theater's mission--to revive forgotten plays--is hard. Often ... Read more Read less

Thought-provoking, Entertaining

See it if you like early the 20th century drama form. A three act play, not tons of action, a lot of (sometimes witty) dialog.

Don't see it if you are uncomfortable exploring different marriage arrangements.

Delightful, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Slow, Entertaining

See it if You like 1933 British manners plays. This is a couples drama that leaves you with something to discuss on the way home. Max Von Essen

Don't see it if You expect an action play. This is the Mint Theatre's production and the story needs time to unfold. Dislike 2 intermissions.

Intelligent, Relevant, Slow, Dated, Good acting

See it if Classic Mint production - well staged & acted. Dated & despite entitled, upper class characters, somehow still relevant to today's mores.

Don't see it if Rather long & too talky (again classic Mint) but sustains interest and has nice suprise ending

See it if you love the Mint productions as we do. The oldies come alive. Score is my 85 and partners 92. I only wish that Mint will find a ..cont.

Don't see it if you need the current one act shows. The Mint is minting vintage plays that run 2-3 hours .

Also perm. space again. They need it if only for their great designer crew.... Read more Read less

Clever, Intelligent, Romantic, Period piece, Racy for the 30s!

See it if You like MINT productions of long lost plays. You are fascinated by the notion of challenging social mores. You enjoy witty conversations.

Don't see it if You need action more than verbal repartee. You are easily annoyed by uneven accent choices and executions. You don't like three act plays!

Also Obviously takes place in Britain in the 1930s, but only one character ... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great acting, Masterful, Profound

See it if You like to see a classic masterfully done by great actors, you want to lose yourself in a show, you want to have a great show experience.

Don't see it if 3 acts are too much for you or if the theme of open relationship or adultery bothers you.

Absorbing, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Great writing

See it if Great production of a very thought-provoking play. Deep and very evenly defended sides of the argument. Great acting. Great smart ending.

Don't see it if traditional old fashioned feeling plays are not your thing. You are uncomfortable with themes of open relationship.

Also This is really well written especially for 1930s. Characters' thoughts... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Delightful, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Profound

See it if u enjoy '30s era, British plays w/ a hint of profundity and emotion. Mint's found another gem and is giving us a super show. Max von Essen &

Don't see it if Elisabeth Gray lead the cast of this handsome production of Miles Malleson's "open-marriage," never produced, 1933 play. Oldiefash perhaps.

Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Slow-paced

See it if You can be patient through a slow start, but over three acts, this 1933 gem rewards with thoughtful reflection in a manner still relevant.

Don't see it if You're looking for a lot of laughs, or for that matter, tears, or you don't have the patience to go 2:15 over two intermissions.

Thought-provoking, Resonant, Inconsistent, Unengaging, Fascinating

See it if you want to see a mediocre production of a fascinating play from the 1930s, parts of which feel like they could have been written today.

Don't see it if you're sick of seeing uninspired direction.

Funny, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Sensitive

See it if You know and love The Mint. This meets their usual high standards. Can marriage sustain extramarital relationships? Wonderful debate.

Don't see it if You cannot accept open marriage as a lifestyle choice. Or if you believe all marriages should be open.

Great acting, Thought-provoking, Resonant, Great writing, Charming

See it if You want well-written dialogue, thought-provoking plot, and stellar acting - in a 1930s play that feels surprisingly and wonderfully modern.

Don't see it if You don't like plays driven by dialogue and character. Similar to works of Noel Coward, but with a bit more thought and a bit less comedy.

Great acting, Intelligent, Relevant, Romantic, Dated

See it if You like seeing unearthed, older plays that are rarely performed, but are still relevant to the current times.

Don't see it if Somewhat-stately British plays aren't your thing, even when the topic at hand is sex and the British accents are nixed.

Funny, Edgy, Intense, Masterful, Profound

See it if Turbulent psychodrama about a troubled marriage. Beautifully developed characters. Full of insight, wit and irony. Amazing acting.

Don't see it if You don't enjoy a lengthy play with deep character development, where the plot consists of personal growth and changing relationships.

Also I also loved Mint Theater's previous production, "A Day by the Sea."

A fascinating superbly done gem!

See it if you love luxuriating in the history of theater. A lovely, startling delightful play about an open marriage. Love Elisabeth Gray!

Don't see it if you want more flash and sizzle. These are people sitting and talking.

The mint theater does it again

See it if you like witty, intelligent & delightful exploration into a modern marriage. Written in 1933 and wise & cerebral today.

Don't see it if If you are not interested in revival of masterful plays.

Indulgent, Fluffy, Bland

See it if you like the idea of seeing the world premiere of an 80 year old play.

Don't see it if you expect said 80 year old play to be a gem.

Great acting, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Great staging, Retro

See it if You're a fan of masterful acting on level of a Meryl Streep or Anthony Hopkins; You enjoy Old-English speaking performers in a 1933 setting.

Don't see it if You've a problem with seeing 2 hours of a play about "Open Marriage". There's really no other reason not to see this wonderfully acted play.

Intelligent, Great staging, Didactic

See it if ... you want to see the world premiere of a 1930's play, given the usual superb Mint production (the costumes are especially striking).

Don't see it if ... you don't have the patience for a didactic, 3-act play, with characters who are less flesh-and-blood than mouthpieces for social views.

Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Great staging

See it if You enjoy Mint productions. Not quite as good as others I have seen but worth seeing. Good acting, interesting story & characters

Don't see it if You want high action & fast pace. Play is slow to start & 3rd act a bit too long.
