"Solitaire/Double Solitaire are two one-act plays which examine the institution of marriage -- marriage today and in the future. When they opened at the Long Wharf Theater in New Haven, Cliff Graves of The New York Times said: 'Thi simple double bill seems to me to be Mr. Anderson's finest achievement to date ... He seems to hit harder and truer that he has ever before.' The Long Wharf Company was asked to perform at the Edinburgh Festival in the summer of 1971, and the Edinburgh Evening News wrote: 'Rarely has the subject of marriage been treated with such startling insight and compassion as in Double Solitaire. This is a tremendous play, deeply moving yet deceptive in its simplicity.'"--From the dust-jacket front flap
