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.

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 Elisabeth Gray lead the cast of this handsome production of Miles Malleson's "open-marriage," never produced, 1933 play. Oldiefash perhaps.

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.

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

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 want high action & fast pace. Play is slow to start & 3rd act a bit too long.

Don't see it if intelligent dialogue and character studies are not your thing.
See it if A pleasant 1933 play that is presented for the first time. The story seems well developed in the style of a Noel Coward 3 act play.
