What is the running time of the play? I need to know if I can catch my train in time.

This article has a bit about the play's reception at its premiere and the story: http://books.guardian.co.uk/review/story/0,,2030172,00.html
Sounds an interesting choice for Maggie Smith.

Smith only enters the fray at the very end of Act 1 - I confess it was a play I knew nothing about before seeing it. Her performance was I felt very lazy - all wrists, arched eye brows and an appalling American accent that wandered throughout the course of the play. She gets the laughs certainly but appears to have settled for playing herself. As for the play itself - well it seemed similar to other Albee's I've seen. I'll avoid plot spoilers but really is it too boring to look for conclusions? I'm all for being challenged by a play, having my thoughts and conceptions questioned but here I just wandered out of the theatre wondering what was the point of the play. Others will no doubt disagree and that's fine but I did hear quite a few less that complimentary comments as the audience were making their way out.
All in all nice to see Smith back on stage and for that reason alone you may wish to see her. It's not a production however that I'd want to see again.
