This was excellently performed by its 6 strong ensemble cast. It was really very difficult to single anyone of the cast out. STUART FOX (Frank Foster), RUTH GIBSON (Teresa Philips), JULIA HILLS (Fiona Foster), DAMIEN MATTHEWS (Bob Philips), EMILY PITHON (Mary Featherstone), and BEN PORTER (William Featherstone) all played their parts extremely well. They all had distinct and well developed characterisation, and there was some beautiful examples of physical theatre.
The pace was very well handled, especially during the painful dinner party scene. The cast built the layers of palpable tension really well.
Director ROBIN HERFORD has created a gloriously funny revival of this play. I particularly enjoyed the look of this production and credit must go to set designer MICHAEL HOLT for the perfect attention to detail…the landline phones, the hoover, phone book, the dream-catcher hanging in the window…all perfectly captured this period at the end of the 1960s/beginning of the 1970s. I loved the avocado starter served from avocado dishes...brought back some lovely memories for me!
