The Open Couple (4 stars)

This article is from 2008.

This re-improvised restaging of Dario Fo and Franca Rame's superb, oft overlooked 1983 two-hander is a delight. Though too young for their roles (Fo and Rame played them in their 50s), Stuart Brennan and Jennifer Dean are brilliantly convincing as the philandering husband and wife, while Peter Snee's direction is imaginative and seamless. Recommended.
