A CLASSIC EALING COMEDY – FEATURING 2 TRAINS, A BUS AND A STEAMROLLER!

This Guildburys production didn’t disappoint and  we knew that we were in for an entertaining couple of hours.I had been looking forward to this production & I wondered how they could stage a version of this 1950’s Ealing comedy.  The setting was simple and  Ian Nichols’ set  props  and Simon Price’s lighting and sound design were undoubted stars of this production.

Period was also perfectly created by Diane Nichols’ costumes which accurately captured the austerity of the early fifties but still with the obligatory matching shoes and bag and doubtless a net petticoat to puff out the full skirted dress.The cast worked well as an ensemble, all striving to be true to the Ealing comedy genre, keeping tongues firmly in cheeks.

A rattling pace was sustained throughout and culminated in the cast singing their curtain-call with gusto.  This was Director Gilly Fick’s first production and, this being so, I certainly look forward to her next one!
