The story of two dissatisfied gentlemen, one from the country and the other from the city, who invent imaginary acquaintances as an excuse to leave their own environments for awhile. The play mixes hilarious comedy with sharp social criticism on topics such as morality, marriage, and class.
I listened to the audio version of this Oscar classic and absolutely loved the word play and snappy dialogue between characters in this play.
The story telling is fast-paced and fun that has a tendency to keep you smiling throughout. The anticipation to get to the outcome of the crazy tale also keeps you at the edge of your seat.
Definitely worth seeing or hearing for the full effect.
