Too ridiculous to read.
Great stuff. Some exquisite verbal detail.
Solidly done. Like the three act structure.
Well done. Interesting forms. Good subject matter.
Monumental. Would love to see it.
15 characters. Starts off with a bang. Infidelity on page 2. Some serious physical demands in Act 2. Is the Chandebise/Poche device necessary? Seems a little much. And what does it mean? Not clear how it resonates with romance, infidelity, etc. Just a gimmick. Act 3 drops off severely.
Nothing special. With the Mexican punchline and multiple wives/girlfriends gag, probably past its sell by date now.
There’s not a whole lot of point to it, but well done. Ripe for parody, particularly the doctor sedating everyone for their “health”. A period piece as WW II raged on.

Holds up remarkably well for 1958. Setting echoes through many downstream plays. An Irish connection.
