This is one of the best plays my book club’s read this year. It’s funny without being too farcical or predictable. I loved that the two main characters both argue strongly and with equal heft. I’d forgotten that Higgins had the habit of swearing and a blind spot about it. The play makes for a fun, smart quick read.
To get some fresh cinematic input on this story, I got Americanizing Shelley from Netflix. It was so amateurish, I had to stop watching after a few minutes. The writing was poor and the production values low.
