How was your experience?
Sorry, it just wasn't funny. I think some of the earlier dialogue might have benefitted from a Howard Hawks kind of overlapping conversation flow. Stretched its "reality" too far I guess in overreacting within a story about a relatively simple problem. When an audience gets bored with a play its eye wanders around to other aspects of the production. It appears to be early or mid 70s here but the telephone answering "machine" (important prop for this story) is in fact an all-digital model from fewer than ten years ago. Second act is six days later, but there's still a big wet spot on the rug from where water was spilled in the first act. And the record player has a CD tray! Almost all of the sound cues, especially the numerous phone messages, come from a single speaker above the stage, while the characters are reacting to the sounds in completely unrelated directions. Actors tried, but shows fails from lack of effort on part of production people.
