The author of this brilliantly written piece set himself the difficult task of keeping the audience entertained while setting his play in real time and through the monologue of one man. Similarly there is little dramatic action within the play - the twirling of a few dresses, the vacuuming of a couch - but not once during this piece did I ever feel bored. While this play is rarely laugh out loud hilarious, it is rather consistently amusing and often very moving, a task that I believe is much more difficult to achieve. (Russell Clark)
