one reviewer put it: The brilliance of the play is in the dialogue. I emphatically agree.
I enjoyed the MTC's production, particularly the staging, which utilised an enormous pop-up book that was opened by one of two marvellously funny-but-very-different butlers (played by Bob Hornery) to reveal each of three backdrops. Geoffrey Rush played Lady Bracknell in a more understated fashion than I expected, which in hindsight was probably a good thing!
I was really looking forward to seeing the play, which caps off my inaugural MTC season with friends, and it proved to be the perfect play to finish on. Light-hearted, hilarious, brilliant.
