For its inventiveness, 'Spaghetti Two Step', by Jack Rosenthal, deserves some attention, despite its short length - less than an hour - and typical television production values.
The play presents several groups of diners in an Italian restaurant - a bickering couple, a recent divorcée boring her in-laws, a works outing from the typing pool, and a young, nervous couple on their first date. We also see two waiters behind the scenes and note their problems and hang-ups as well.
Executed well enough to keep you watching, and with some good performances (even if they sometimes border on caricature), the Two Step (referring to a coda showing what's happened to the same people one year on) is still watchable today.
