How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The play was a typical witty Tom Stoppard experience. I saw the play 30 or 40 years ago when it first came out and I am afraid it has aged as have I. A play about marital infidelity--and no one is ashamed of breaking his/her vows or afraid of catching a sexually transmitted disease--is dated. There is no angst, just a witty come-back line. These are not nice people.
