The text is clear and there are minimal stage directions which will allow producers and directors quite a lot of freeway in staging this play.
Perhaps unfairly overshadowed by the National Theatre version, this play should stand out as an example of adaptation at its cleanest allowing theatrical techniques to be employed to their fullest and allowing freedom of the imagination.
