I had been really looking forward to this one. I recalled seeing and liking the companion piece, When I Was A Girl I Used To Scream And Shout, many years ago.
Sadly, this one was rather grim and dark by comparison. Well acted, well directed, but neither Janie nor I much liked the play.
- Michael Billington in the Guardian was characteristically kind to an Orange Tree production – click here;
- Nick Smurthwaite in The Stage was quite harsh by comparison, sharing our irritation with the play if not the production – click here.
As usual, we didn’t feel we’d wasted our time and enjoyed our evening out, not least our Don Fernando dinner which we almost always enjoy as an occasional treat after the Orange Tree.
