A zany comedy that had me laughing in the beginning, middle, and end.
The bonus play is a bit too didactic to enjoy as a play, but one must remember that it got staged and eventually published too... that fact could give anyone encouragement to write one of their own.

I'm not even going to rate this as it was just too stupid to rate! Unbelievable that Smith would do something as drole and unentertaining as this play. Definitely would have to be british to get the humor on this overacting and badly written farce as they have a very dull, dry sense of what is humorous. What is the british facination with the royalty and the rich that they have to portray them in just about EVERYTHING they do? Talk about your boorish society with money and no real values and as stupid as a sack of beans! This one is for the rubbish pile!

wonderful adaptation of a Shavian farce. For Dr Who fans, see Tom Baker as the Egyptian doctor. Great quote: " ... why is it that the people who know how to enjoy themselves never have any money and the people who have money never know how to enjoy themselves?" The disc also features "The Apple Cart" with Helen Mirren. This is a fascinating cynical view of the politics of monarchy and democracy, nationalism, trade unions and corporatism; and, of course, society and marriage. Not to mention Brits views of America. In the first part, Magnus delivers a monologue about the responsibility of democracy and "the tyranny of popular ignorance and popular poverty".
