KIRKUS REVIEW

Samantha Drake and Mark Kendall are a gloriously glamorous Burton-Taylor theatre couple and they married when Samantha's husband, a cripple, fell to his death--an accident witnessed (?) by four-year-old Kenny who has now grown up to write a not too absurd play on the Hamlet motif. Mark is determined to act in it (if only to learn what exactly Kenny is writing out even if it is something he has also tried to forget)... The Electra-fying ending won't surprise anybody but the ladies will read right through it without an intermission. It's for just that type of matinee audience.
