a dreamer on the railways fears divine retribution
didi-5 from United Kingdom
22 November 2008
Edgar Lunt is in a rut. With a poorly dad in bed and always on the hunt
for sherbet fountains, a girlfriend of eight years who makes him
lunches he can't stand and gives away, and a job cleaning railway
carriages, it is no wonder he dreams. But any pleasure comes at a cost,
in Edgar's view.
The play centres around what happens when Edgar breaks his routine and
leaves his comfortable surroundings to go south with his workmate, a
student called Trevor. In London he is slow to unwind but eventually
finds a kindred spirit he can share his philosophy of life with.
Lovely performances from Alfred Lynch as Edgar, Yootha Joyce as Phoebe
his girlfriend, Jimmy Jewel as his dad, and Richard Warwick as Trevor
life this drama above the run of the mill. It provides both a snapshot
of a life gone by and looks to the future, as well as making us smile
at a likable central character.
