Saw this double bill yesterday with a good (£25) day seat.  As most people have said, Hymn is fine, but slight and insignificant compared to Cocktail Sticks - I just couldn't get enough of the latter and wished there had been more of it.  And every cast member deserves a mention (plus the musicians) - a real ensemble effort and the "parents" were superb.  Some great one-liners, too, especially the one about not putting yourself into what you write but rather, finding yourself there.

I think it would have been a better idea to expand Cocktail Sticks into a fuller play and ditch Hymn for the transfer, personally.
