After an uncertain start the play gained momentum. We did not like Penny Downie's performance as Constance Spry . My sister had been a student of Constance's and she criticised her vocal performance and characterisation. The play did well to set Constance's life within her 1930's social sphere and connections to the bohemian artistic set. The flower arrangements were beautiful and reminiscent of that era's elegance.

This is the best play I have seen in my life. Anton Burge deserves to win play of the year in London for his sensitive portrayal of Constance Spry's private life. Christopher Ravenscroft is exceptional as Henry Spry and really all the actors are fantastic. I am going to see this play again which was so moving.
