Emma Thompson and Ian Richardson are superb.
16 November 2002 | by Garnet4See all my reviews

I loved the play, and the entire cast was good. However, I am reserving my special comments for Emma Thompson and Ian Richardson. I had never seen her before, but it was clear from her performance that she was a major talent. I had seen Ian Richardson both on television and stage, and knew how great he was. The scenes between the two of them crackle with electricity. PBS, if you read this, please put the production onto video. The viewing public will be the better for it.
