The characters may be different, but the earlier comedy leaves a number of threads dangling (or labors seemingly lost) at its conclusion, and it is much the same tensions – interpersonal, philosophical or political – that are shown to exist between other, analogous characters, and that are finally resolved, in the later play. ‘‘These productions are a joy…’’ (The Sunday Times)
