This play was seen by my wife and myself when it was shown as part of the Wednesday Play series. It has stayed with us ever since. I think it was the female character that sat in the car on the journey to the gorge of the title who read every road sign on their way in a deadpan manner. i am not sure what the actresses name was but she did it so well that whenever we go on a long drive we start to do it too for a while! I do not really remember the story,as it was so long ago,but that part of the story has been so memorable for us. If only writers could replicate that sort of thing now. Only Alan Bennett comes close to that kind of observation in his writing.
