This just felt like a showcase of how screwed up an author could make a family. It bordered on ridiculous and read like bad reality tv. The language and behaviour surrounding some of the topics in this play made me think this was written in the 80s and I was shocked to find out the actual publication date. Finally, I absolutely hate when male authors write about the “female experience” and this was no exception.
