This revival of one of Hare’s best-known plays gives a chance to reassess a work that divided the critics on its first appearance. Its New York run famously triggered a bad review from New York Times critics Frank Rich, followed by a protracted argument in print between him and Hare. The playwright is riding high just now, though, a week after his latest, The Permanent Way, opened to very positive reviews on a UK tour.
