Effervescent would be the best adjective to describe this contemporary British drawing room comedy, written by a contemporary non-British author. Set in the mad-cap household of glamorous and neurotic art critic Cornelia Thorndike and her splendidly sane secretary, the comedy bubbles along with a delicious assortment of intruders, passers-by, droppers-in, and long and short-term lovers, all of whom invariably bump into each other in the wrong place at the wrong time.
"The play is a sparkling, carbonated, bubbly two hours of madcap mayhem with so many twist and turns that you need to stay on your toes to keep all that is happening–sane–if that is possible with this laugh riot." - Broadwayonline.com
