A witty little 1930 comedy of domestic violence which I’ve only ever “seen”on the radio. Ah, but it was funny and entertaining and made its own rules. And so quick: had the actors spoken at normal speed, it would have been quite a long play!
The interval scene change was an entertainment in itself. Out came the electric drills and a whole army of removal people. However, the second act made clear that a gramophone, a dining table and two chaises longues were indispensable.
It was a London Classic Theatre production with:
- Amanda – Helen Keeley
- Elyot – Gareth Bennett-Ryan
- Sibyl – Olivia Beardsley
- Victor – Paul Sandys
