a dreamer on the railways fears divine retribution

7/10
Author: 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.
