Flawlessly staged by Dominic Cooke, this insightful evening is given a set of riveting performances that are by turns brittle and profound.
A firecracker of a play.
Both a touching evocation of grief and a sharp satire about hypocrisy.
An evening of ebullient provocation
All the acting is out of this world. Essential.
