The Primrose Hill Ladies Club

1 out of 5 stars
(1user review)
Apparently based upon a real historical venue, Bern Bowers's quirky 1968-set comedy follows the goings on at a North London boarding house to which men decamp in order to live as women for a day or two.

Quite simply one of the worst pieces of theatre its been my misfortune to be subjected to. From a rather interesting setup this piece quickly devolves into a screaming match with the subtly permanently set at 11. Any sympathy I had for the characters and their needs was quickly euthanised by two dimensional characters and a leaden script. A friend was slightly kinder and said it was 'dealing with some difficult issues' but without some attempt at characterisation and graduated emotional understanding that's cold comfort to the unfortunate audience. Avoid.
