Many thanks to everyone who submitted a review of last weeks play Calais. They were all great reviews which made it difficult to choose a winner. However, the bottle of Malt Whisky goes to Jean Reid. Congratulations! We would also like to encourage T. Deveney to keep up his poetic efforts as they are highly entertaining and likely to produce a bottle of malt in the future.
Here is the winning review that Jean submitted:
Nelson is dead, and his mistress and daughter have fled to the Channel port where they survive by pawning the last of their finery to keep the landlord at bay and food on the table. But Emma in rich in attitudes – the dramatic poses of classical characters with which she charmed the Hamilton circle – and hopes to impress a French soiree. April de Angelis has created a starring part for Joanna Bacon who, buoyed up by red wine and memories, is ludicrous and pitiable by turns. The anachronistic exchanges with the naive Louise Ford are entertaining but also touching.
If you are coming along to see this weeks play Good With People, don't forget to leave a review and you could be in for a chance of winning a bottle of Malt.
