Never has Jean Kerr's wit had a keener edge or her comic sense more peaks of merriment than in this clever confection which starred Gilda Radner and Sam Waterston on Broadway as a pair whose spouses are having an affair. They counter by "inventing" an affair of their own. He, ironically, is a marriage counsellor and a bit stodgy while his wife easily juggles husband, lover and mother. The other is a kook married to a wealthy man. All ends well for this daffy foursome.
"Civilized, charming, stylish...Very warm and most amusing... Delicately interweaves laughter and romance." - The New York Times
"An amiable comedy about the eternal quadrangle...The author's most entertaining play in years." - New York Daily News
