Back to reviews
I find Pinter quite difficult to review, and particularly this play, as it has so many nuances, and could be taken to mean many different things, so after my initial comment I will content myself with reviewing the actors and technicals in the main.
I applaud WDS for tackling different plays and projects, it is always good to give
the Society something challenging to get their teeth into -
The set was well-
The cast were excellent -
I thought Sara Payne as Kate created this rather other-
Irene Morris always creates a strong character, and this was no exception in her
portrayal of Anna. I liked her interaction with Deeley, there was always an underlying
tension there, and her rather at times patronising air with Kate. A difficult part
I think overall the play lacked a bit of pace at times.
The programme was very nicely put together, and liked the linking of the colour for the pages, with the colour of the walls. Shows thought and attention to detail.
I understand this was Robin Langer's first foray into direction, and as such it was
a good first shot -
An interesting production, a challenge to both cast and audience, but very well acted.
