“There’s an old adage about farces like The-Out-of-Towners: ‘In the first act get your principal character up a tree; in the second act, throw stones at him; in the third act, get him down gracefully.’ Simon places the Kellermans up a tree (the concrete jungle of New York City), but doesn’t throw stones at them: he hurls boulders.”
