After Henry leaves his wife for another woman, hes confronted with being the cuckold himself. Both dazzlingly clever and emotionally naked, Henry's search for the real thing in art and love demonstrates beautifully why both are worth the effort in the end."--Leaf A. Theatre Works, Audio Theatre Collection
