The general feedback that I got from the audience was that it was good, but the third act had gone on too long. No wonder, my insistence on the character of Ruth going through the whole process of cooking breakfast and Harry eating it before any real action even gets under way is a huge gamble. Does realism have to be some clock-ticking real? Most people got the idea anyway.
I think the audience was surprised at the links between the three acts, although I believe it flew right over some people's heads. I've had a few people suggest that I re-adjust the order of the acts, but sorry to say, it wouldn't work in the same way. There was a fair share of negative comments, but judging from the good comments, it has given me the confidence to seek publication for this play, or perhaps it shall see another day on stage in the future.
