Reviews

Bright, saucy family comedy

"Every Other Evening" is a family comedy concerned mainly with marital relationships, pre-marital relationships and extra marital relationships.

Saucy entertaining, predictable. It has some good lines and is set in Paris. Wythall Dramatic Society are presenting it at Woodrush School.

The Comedy generally is tackled well by a team who look at home in the roles. Emphasis and timing in delivery could help to point more clearly some of the dialogue. Frank Winter has directed the play.

Reviewer J.D., Birmingham Evening Mail October 1971


Poor Choice of Material

CRITIC RATING ***

Poor choice of material sealed the fate of Wythall dramatic society's latestest performance held at Woodrush school hollywood last week.

The play "Every Other Evening" by Francois Campaux proved to be a wearisome affair. And despite a brave effort by the cast never progressed in any worthwhile direction.

It offered the audience a tedious series of contrived situations, trite dialogue and an almost non existent plot. Loosely described as a comedy, it was at best mildly amusing and at worst deadly dull.

Husband leaves wife to move in with mistress, his family turn up; past indescretions are aired;new relationships are tentatively made; and eventually in a new light of honesty everyone decided to carry on with their affairs as before.

Gerry Solomon as the pompus husband and Pam davey who played his trendy daughter both made a spirited attempt to bring some life into the show.

For the rest of the players, Val Archer gave a competent performance as the mistress and David Plumb played the love struck son with some vitality.

But throughtout it was painfully obvious that this was a script which offered the mebers of the cast very few opportunities to the cast to excercise their talents.
