A strained exercise in dramaturgical gimmickry that would be trying even as fringe theater.

The results are slight but old-fashioned fun, Think less TS Eliot, more 'Carry On'.

Things only properly kick off in a frantic farce-like finale; by then the laboriousness of the plotting has taken its toll.

Souls are bared and old scores are settled, among a gallery of characters who could probably be bettered.
