A touching and compassionate play, in which a well-to-do American couple living in France in 1954 must face issues of quality of life and right-to-die as the husband faces the fact that his cancer is terminal and will soon end him. Played by Henry Fonda and Olivia de Havilland on the stage, this is an intelligent and touching treatment of how a loving couple faces the end we all must, just with a bit more foreknowledge in their case. The wife's final words to her husband had me quietly weeping as I read. I think these issues were more taboo in those days, but it's still a potent punch of ideas and emotions. ( )
