A lovely play- never seen it before. Very funny, and nicely constructed; Farcical without being unbelievable. Doesn't outstay its welcome either. Part 2 is under 30mins, the interval being between Act 2 & 3. Is this where it's usually placed?
Anthony Ward's design is sumptuous. They just need to sort out the big scene change which was rather noisy and clunky (this was only the 2nd preview).

Set wise, it does make more sense to put the interval between Act 1 & 2, but dramatically it works much better this way round, between 2 & 3.

Given the calibre of this cast and creative team, I'd hope that a transfer is on the cards, but who knows until after press night?

The fight scene was marvellous, especially a lamp being wrenched out of its socket with a flurry of sparks that had the audience gasping. The arrival of the horrified Victor and Sibyl seemed to me the perfect moment for the interval.
If this production transfers to London, I'd definitely recommend seeing it.
Also tagged with Chichester, coming in?
