Poetry vs Sport
30 September 2002 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

John Alderton & Pauline Collins are marvellous as usual in what is probably my favourite Wodehouse Playhouse. From the first meeting of Charlotte Mulliner and Aubrey Trefusis (né Bassinger) in The Crushed Pansy (where poets meet and mingle) through the gnu-obsessed Uncle Francis and Charlotte's unfortunate poem ("When cares attack, and things look black...") to the inevitable happy ending, this is a deliciously silly romp through the diametrically opposed worlds of poésie and 'hunting'.
