What a charming play this is with a fine story and superb acting. Each character has a strong personality that works wonderfully well. The husband played by John Quayle is a gem, he plays the part almost to perfection as he tries to stand up to is militaristic wife, played by Caroline Blakiston. Also exceptional is Roger Allam, who plays Trissotin the poet, whose facial expressions are wonderful.
This is a splendid satire with some marvellous acting by all, which makes for a satisfying evenings entertainment .
