By David Tristram. Directed by Anne Simmons. 1812 Theatre. 27th Feb – 22nd March, 2014.
David Tristram is a very funny English playwright who specialises in creating hysterically funny plays mostly for community theatres. They have small casts, one set, and generally make fun of “Am-Dram” itself – with subject matter sending up detective genres and popular cultures like soap operas. He is the perfect choice for 1812’s start to 2014.
Experienced director Anne Simmons clearly has a ball with the play and her cast. Tristram writes most of his comedy business into the script itself, but Simmons and cast realise it beautifully.
