It makes you want to see it as a film directed by Ernst Lubitsch. It's about a three theatre people, a playwright and producer and their new composer/protege. They have arrived at a count's castle to raise money for the show and confer with their usual prima donna star. She is engaged to the composer. Things get a little crazy when they discover a former lover of the prima donna is also there to revisit old times. His appearance threatens the engagement and hence the upcoming production. The playwright conceives of a way out for everyone, he writes a play.
This is a great play. Talk about a show that needs to be re-staged. It has a light, playful tone and some fabulous double entendre's. The final scene is just great. I wish this play was easily obtained so that you all could read it. Maybe I'll just have to do a production of it.
