Storyline

It's the sixties. Gregory loves Ginny, and Ginny loves Gregory. But unfortunately Ginny also loves Philip, or at least she used to, and Philip loves her. Does Philip love his wife too? Ginny tells Gregory she's going to see her parents, when she's actually going to see Philip to break things off. Gregory, thinking to surprise her, gets there first, and the chaos begins. The first scene takes place in Ginny's flat upstairs at 41 Redbury Square, London. The remaining scenes take place on the backyard patio of the Carter house at The Willows, Lower Pendham, Box.

A chance to see Imogen Stubbs in a miniskirt
8 June 2005 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Made in 1990, when Imogen Stubbs was the hottest female on the British stage, Michael Maloney had distinguished himself in "Henry V" and "Truly, Madly, Deeply" and Nigel Hawthorne had established himself in TV history following "Yes Minister". This is a classic British farce; it's the 60's and Michael Maloney is a nice, but somewhat foolish guy dating Imogen Stubbs, all looking cute and mod in her tangerine minidress and bobbed hairstyle. But she's also been having an affair with elder married man, Nigel Hawthorne. Maloney mistakenly thinks he's her father, and arranges a "surprise visit" to his house. Stubbs and Hawthorne play up to his delusion, whilst Hawthorne convinces his wife that Stubbs is his secretary. There's plenty of witty dialogue, jokes deriving from the mistaken identity set up and good performances. However, there is practically no reason for this being set in the 60's other than the reason I set out at the beginning.
