It was interesting to finally hear this play. You can see almost at once how this story profoundly affected the next fifty years or so of British books, movies, and television.
I though it was the Monty Python crew who had invented that zany kind of comedy. Now, I'd say they just updated and perfected what they learned from this play.
And that too-clever and insanely fast banter of old British movies? Yup, it seems to come from this play as well.
The play is a bit dated now, of course, but was still funny and very fascinating to listen to.
