"Early insights into female power."
by Olivia Popica for remotegoat on 30/04/14

Following the tradition of presenting plays while keeping faithful to their original form, Logos Theatre Company brings back Edward Ravenscroft's most popular farce in a three hour long showcase of ridiculous love affairs and masterful escapes. It's a tough challenge asking an audience to stay put for such a stretch of time in the fast paced world of today. But the cast made a good effort keeping the energy levels at peak, particularly thanks to Hannah Ellis and Kate Winter and their vibrant performances.

Hannah, who plays Mr. Dashwell's "pious" wife, has a great comical timing and the right amount of expressivity to be classed as 'natural' and convincing in the world of farce. An energetic Kate Winter brings Arabella's waiting woman, Engine, to life and turns her into an undercover business woman worthy of her name. She's the one that supervises the love affair, directing it like a pro: her monologue about the newly discovered career as a ‘pimp’ filled my belly with laughter. There's a constant sparkle in Kate's eye, something that shows you how awake and how ready to take the next opportunity this character is.

Then there's Peggy, Wiseacres’s young bride, who albeit young, naive and cheerfully obedient, literally makes a fool of her husband's name and reputation: whilst he tries to prove that having a brainless wife is the safest way into a successful marriage, Peggy, floating in a childish curiosity, lets the young and charming Mr. Ramble teach her the "duties" of a wife without even thinking ... erm … once! Maeve Leahy's interpretation turns this character into one that you'd always forgive and never forget.
