It was part of NT Live quite awhile ago, certainly well before I saw it live in September last year.

As Mockingbird Girl says below, it's not top-drawer Bennett, but even also-ran Bennett is more than enough to entertain, amuse and provoke some thoughts about the world. It felt like a first draft that needed shaping and paring, but perhaps Hytner doesn't want to put an octogenarian playwright through that?

I'd say as late plays by masters go, it was more satisfying than either The Hard Problem (Stoppard) or I'm Not Running (Hare).
