I went to this delightful show on New Year’s Eve and had a lovely time. The director, Carter Thomas, did such an excellent job resetting the play from 1890s Oxford to 1920s Yale that I didn’t realize until after the fact that the characters had not been written as Americans. The bulldog on the mantle was a nice subtle touch! The cast members were completely committed to their high-energy roles for the duration of the show, equally prepared to flit about in their stylish 20s regalia and dive behind a piece of furniture should the moment require it. The play itself was full of old-fashioned silliness and charm, perfect for a fun night out.
