Synopsis:

Notes:
Sue Lenier is the playwright, which is All the information Anyone who saw her last year's Knight Fall needs to send him lickety-spit to the Mandela Theatre. . .a sardonic feminist Anticipation of the relations of man And woman. Lenier walks worthily in the Twain-Thurber tradition. . .a fine script - The Scotsman; "Funny And brutal. . .and like All the best black comedy there is A twist. Recommended"- Radio Forth; Thought-provoking contemporary Analogies Are combined with wonderfully comic moments in this Already highly Acclaimed play, which I recommend you to see" - Review 88.
