This period piece will bring back many a memory of what it used to be like for the older generations. Mouthy kids of today probably won't get it, they will not believe how the offspring looked up to their parents the way they did then. All the performers got their characters just right, good ensemble playing all round, I do have a hearing aid but had no trouble from way back in the dress circle getting all the dialogue. With sympathetic direction, jokes from a different era well timed,and one very good scene when bad news was delivered through the patio with no words audible some subtle lighting changes and silent actions working perfectly to convey the tragedy, super work yet simple. A very enjoyable taking one back experience. - RT

Very difficult to understand, mumbling actresses and actors; acoustics poor?; jokes feable. - dourleyn
