Vivid and engrossing

This is the first time I've listened to a play, with a cast of four actors (and the laughter of a live audience). I greatly enjoyed this play, and found myself "rewinding" frequently just to hear certain scenes again. The actors are fantastic, and bring depth and life to an already strong script, as two couples come to grips with a dissolving marriage among them. In this short play, each permutation of characters appears -- the women together, the men together, the couple whose marriage has failed -- allowing their history and peculiarities to rise to the surface and become visible. I also appreciated that the messiness of these relationships remains, up through the play's ending.
