It is a treat. The Dance of Death crowd here are probably avoiding it but the Yes Prime Minister bunch would enjoy it. I justified my attendance on the basis that Feydeau is important in historical terms so I had an academic interest in it.

You do know it's on for ages yet, Lynette? I'm not seeing it myself for at least 2 weeks.

Just realised this was in the WE about 15 years ago as, I think, An Absolute Turkey with Peter Davison and, I think, Clive Francis. I remember rather enjoying it, and a production of Occupe T'Oi D'Amelie at around the same time.

A theatre in the round, like the Orange Tree, is not exactly ideal for playing a farce and, truth to tell, I did miss the multiple doors that so characterize Feydeau's work. Miming the opening and closing of doors - with sound effects - didn't really cut it and made the entrances and exits less precise and less surprising than they needed to be. Apart from that though the cast was excellent and it was a fine funny evening at the theatre. They do good work in Richmond.
I promise I'll find my marbles soon.
