    How impossibly unjust that people tend to think Henley s career peaked with Crimes of the Heart and The Miss Firecracker Contest given that she s continued to deliver delightful plays since then like this quirky comedy in which a handful of mismatched couples struggle to make sense of it all during the 24 hours leading up to a probably doomed marriage Her characters are vivid the punchlines assured the overall effect, beyond charming.

    Probably like 2.5 stars It didn t really do much for me It was just plain fine There were some interesting things going on between some of the characters maybe if I d seen it rather than read it, it would have been really good The play is mostly short scenes between 2 or 3 people people are always entering or exiting There aren t any scenes long enough to use for classwork standalone performance, and I didn t see any good monologues either.Also, it s mostly about people being selfish, betraying each other, and being unfaithful, which is not really my cup of tea None of the marriages in the play are happy or healthy There is so much infidelity in the world already I like to see plays where couples stick together and work everything out.

    This was interesting in an offbeat, farcical kind of way It was funny, I enjoyed it, but I wouldn t want to do it.
