This is a hugely popular comedy, despite its 'age'. It plot is clever and the characters vivid. Cooney's dialogue structure is, as always, very funny led by ingenious set ups and conflicts between his characters - specifically the use of the double/simultaneous set of two flats and the inspired use of the play's many telephone conversations.

However, some of the characters' attitudes to and description of male gays is very outdated. One has to look at it in today's terms. You can't allude to gay sex as, for example, being 'abnormal' That said, a few small tweaks and all is well. That done, our audience is going to love it.
