Too ridiculous to read.
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.

Immaculately plotted. Interesting how easily a husband decides to have his wife killed. Aside from the absence of real understanding of where that darkness comes from, everything else here works pretty well. Great single setting.
Good, clean, cheesey fun. Hard to imagine this keeping the masses enthralled on Broadway in the late 70s, but so it went. Concise and to the point. Good opportunities for melodrama in production today. Under-developed: the homo erotic story between Sidney and Clifford.
