This is a powerful play, and so interestingly put together that you won't be able to stop reading once you start. The characters are strangely realistic, and the writing beautiful. This is worth reading or staging.

Sometimes once a play gets made into a movie, it's easy for the play to get lost. This play stands well on its own, and doesn't need all the props of a movie to carry it. The set is actually very simple (and surreal in many places). The premise isn't unique - a con man manages to get a bunch of self-important people to take him seriously - but the execution is original. The writing catches the cynical cleverness of the not-quite rich but highly educated, and yet it isn't just another swipe at pretentiousness. Guare takes his characters seriously, and appears to like at least some of them. He strips away the false pretensions and allows us to see the people underneath, without sneering at either the haves or the have nots. Worth reading over again for the subtle plot points you missed the first time.
