Mishaps of the kind peculiar to the theatre occur with hilarious regularity. The older actor, Robert, is a seasoned professional. John, the younger one, is an eager to learn novice. Gradually their roles of teacher and pupil change and by the end it is the older actor who is deferential to the younger

"A glorious comedy. . . . An evening of pure theatre" ~ N.Y. Times
