BroadwayTonyJ, I'm really glad you liked it. I think your comparison to Noises Off is an apt one; for both shows, a lot of the first part is funny in itself, but it also serves as the setup for when everything goes to pieces at the end. When I first saw The Real Inspector Hound, I went in totally cold, so I had no idea that it was going to take a huge left turn. The part where one critic answers the ringing phone on the set is very funny, but when he turns to the other one and says, "It's for you," it was so hilarious that I can still remember vividly that part of the production all these years later. And that it's the critic's wife, when he told her "never to call him at work," was a great follow up. It's an extremely well-written play, and I'm glad you saw a great production of it. I wish there was one playing near me!
