More than OK - Very good indeed. Can't think what the Telegraph reviewer saw - not the same play as me. Handled very well and acted in the style of drama of the day of the setting. All characters well defined. Shav could have been a little nastier but perhaps that would have been too much. Generally sensitive and informative. A slice of Constance Spry's life which led into other people's very well. Extremely well acted, lovely set. Good pace and I liked the small scenes and well handled scene changes. Loved the "Quaint Irene" style of Gluck, liked the mix of jolly hockey sticks and shyness of Constance, thoroughly enjoyed the portrayal of Sirie (didn't recognise Carol Royle until looked at programme). Liked Val's ability to ignore other's disapproval, and found Rosemary a lovely sympathetic ear and counterpoint to all that was going on. It was not just a piece of history because it raised the on going question "Can a woman have both a career and family happiness." Thank you Mr. Burge for writing plays for women. Too few to be found.
Outstanding play, sensitively done by Anton Burge who deserves an award for his sensitive protrayal of Constance Spry. This is the best play I have seen in my life and Christopher Ravenscroft who plays Henry Spry was incredible in this role. All the actors were brilliant. I am going to see this play again...... This play deserves a wider audience and to win best play of the year in London.
