The rather twee middle class atmosphere and setting belies this play's message of dealing with family secrets and lies. It is full of wit and double entendres, but again this levity is a comic mask for the serious issues of relationships, communications and compromises that the play is dealing with. Grace, for all her ‘difficult' and forthright behaviour is shown, in spite of her apparent narrow background, to be a modern version of Jan Struthers's Mrs Miniver, with an insight to the plight of others less fortunate and some healthily cynical views including a certain PM whom she describes as a ‘dictator with bosoms'.
