Henry may be the wittiest playwright of his generation, but he’s hopelessly naïve when it comes to understanding love and infidelity. Writing about betrayal is one thing, living with it is another. After Henry leaves his wife for another woman, he’s confronted with being the cuckold himself. Both dazzlingly clever and emotionally naked, Henry’s search for the “the real thing” in art and love demonstrates beautifully why both are worth the effort in the end.

The play's name says it all
It's a vivacious play about love, (in)fidelity and art.
Henry, he's my favourite character as he seems to have the backbone which guides him through the life, even though he can be not in line with the "crowd" around, for example, his wife Charlotte or daughter. Yet, he learns a lot as the play progresses (in respect to Charlotte, Anny, for example), which shows his flexibility and consciousness at the same time.
This is the third time that I listened to "LA Theatre works" performances, and I am absolutely happy with their art. It's breathtaking, lively. Made me want to follow to the end. Flawless. Thanks a lot to the company!
The main characters repeating "Are you ok?" It's so caring. Henry's idea about love as knowing. Ann's understanding of fidelity.
