We didn’t see the original (The attic, the pearls and three Fine girls) so we can’t compare. This play is fun and silly. The cast pull it off – as you would expect when the actors are Ann-Marie Macdonald, Martha Ross and Severn Thompson.
But it is essentially a silly play with the kind of humour that infects women when they are in groups of old friends (or sisters). Some of the jokes are laugh out loud funny; others warrant just a chuckle and others a groan. Overall it was an enjoyable afternoon, but not great theatre.
