Reg Varney off the buses
4 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This play, originally an ITV Play of the Day, is a bonus feature on the complete box set of On The Buses. It's interesting to see Reg Varney acting in a straight role (straight as in not comedy) as the cabaret act in a small caravan park. It's a low-budget, almost kitchen sink drama portraying the break up of Sherry's (Reg Varney's character) marriage. As someone who only knows Reg Varney from his comedy roles this is a refreshing treat, Reg turns out to be rather good here. There are a few familiar faces in the supporting cast, and although Reg stars his role does not dominate. This drama is certainly not a comedy, so don't expect something along the lines of The Rag Trade or On The Buses, instead you can expect something more like early Ken Loach. To find this drama on the complete On The Buses box set is odd as this won't naturally appeal to OTB fans. On the other hand, someone looking to search out low-key plays from the 60s is likely not to enjoy On The Buses. Worth seeking out and watching.
