When the parking lot is full, just head up the hill, plenty space on side of the road, a light walk.

I enjoyed the play and laughed loudly at several lines. The actors were all excellent, and I was amazed at the fight scene with pillows and objects flying.

This play was ok. The acting was really good and the sets were well done. I liked the concept of the play story, but I found it dragged a little, too much dialog and wasn't as funny as I'd hoped. There were two intermissions.

Description

One of the most flippant plays ever written. Elyot and Amanda, once married and now honeymooning with new spouses at the same hotel, meet by chance, reignite the old spark and impulsively elope. After days of being reunited, they again find their fiery romance alternating between passions of love and anger. Their aggrieved spouses appear and a roundelay of affiliations ensues as the women first stick together, then apart, and new partnerships are formed.
