I usually really love Bartlett's plays, but this dour comedy, although excellent in parts, comes up just a bit short. I also question how he thinks this will get produced with any frequency, since it requires three very detailed sets, as well as two actors who convincing need to age from 16 to 64. But has an important message as to how the failure of the ideals of the sixties have lead to the more prosaic realities of the modern age.
I'm not sure what the point of the author was.That the swinging generation was selfish and hedonistic? That the generation of their children is just as selfish? That the former got to enjoy themselves whereas the latter is bearing the brunt of economic deflation? That the latter grew up in the erroneous assumption that they were entitled to freeloading all their lives?Did he have a point at all?
It was good but absolutely not my cup of tea.
I thought it was a very cleverly written play which viewed three different time periods starting with the 1960's. It's the baby boomer generation going head to head with the X generation. One can tell the author spent a good deal of time on research and creating his characters to represent the differences in thoughts between the generations. I thought it beneficial that the play included an introduction by James Grieve, who was the director for world premiere in 2010.
Amazing play! Cannot wait to see it performed next month!
One of Bartlett's better efforts charting 45 years of a volatile relationship from 1967 to 2011 - two wonderful tour de force characters for virtuoso actors.
A play we have to design for.
