Relatively Speaking

March 7, 2013

Alan Ayckbourne’s clever and charming 1965 play of mistaken identity and mishap had all of the twists and turns of the very best of comedy plots and demonstrates the author’s heritage in setting the stage for the genre English situation comedy. The beautiful Felicity Kendal draws us into her character’s situation with the deft touch of an actor of great pedigree. Jonathan Coy and Max Bennett also demonstrate their command of character. Kara Tointon in her third stage performance (I have seen the other two too) although the weakest of the ensemble in stagecraft, has a stage presence and charisma. All in all quite wonderful.
