I wasn't very taken with this, I suppose they were faithful to the original text but that was written in 1747 and is not very clear today. It might have been a bit more enjoyable if they had subtitles. The story wasn't special or funny, and the characters weren't especially likeable. I didn't understand why some of the things were supposed to be funny, it might have been better with more information on the period and context for those of us who are not aficionados of 18th century plays.
