“The last show is always a very strange affair. It’s like a party, a great buzz of excitement. But then each actor will leave, with laughter still ringing in the air and a cheery wave. Then it stops. And as you watch each of them walk down the street, they look terribly lonely. That’s the thing about it, you see. After all the applause and elation, we walk home alone. And that’s who actors are - the happiest, saddest people you’ll ever meet.”
A touching and hilarious comedy about an actress making her farewell performance...
"A huge success ...
The applause just did not
want to end ... The play is
full of witty dialogue that is also philosophically profound ... A smart, intelligent and very amusing play." (Merkur/The Mercury)
