If I were to see the play again, it would be because it has two excellent woman's roles that give lots of room for interpretation. The play itself isn't particularly interesting outside of those two roles. However, in passing, it does manage to say something about the role of imagination (even to the point of madness) in making human life bearable. Not a profound notion, but worth thinking about from time to time. ( )
