drama of awful people in the drawing room
31 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This adaptation of a Noel Coward story is set in a New York socialite's house where writer Evan Lorrimer goes for 'a quiet weekend'. Shades a 'Hay Fever' here with a bunch of horrendous people shouting, screaming, being generally catty and conniving.

A lot of fun and buoyed up by performances from Paul Daneman as Lorrimer, Carroll Baker as his hostess and Clive Swift as her unfaithful husband, and Britt Walker as the black butler who makes killer martinis, Aesop.

Running at just under an hour, this play is diverting enough - nothing special but acidic enough to raise a few smiles.
