The highlights are in the surrounding performances: the excellent synchronous arcs, or rather plummets, of the Major and Evelyn’s Landlady. It is the masterful choreography of these two side characters, their increasing inebriety and insistence on unintentionally foiling Evelyn’s plot, that offer the biggest laughs of the night… Margaret Preece as the amorous widowed Landlady drew an impromptu round of applause for her sherry-

fuelled, wailing rendition of an old love song whilst stumbling offstage.
