Customer Review

on 6 November 2013
Prospective purchasers should note that this is Russell's 2003 revised edition of the play. Ostensibly aiming to remove references to the 1970s in an attempt to 'universalize' the play, Russell has managed to dilute and, to my mind, ultimately destroy its original and essential drily witty tone. Where the humour was subtle and pointed, it is now overt and blunt: no longer funny. To get the full impact of this great play, make sure you buy the original (1986) version - if you can find it.
