By the end, Ayckbourn turns the stage into a farcical
Freudian nightmare, only to ratchet
the stakes up much higher in the final moment, which the TCL production handles quite well.
The handiwork of designers Brian Miller (lights, co-scenic) and Sarah Spencer (co-scenic)
aid the moment's power. Its a minor miracle, as, using just a scrim and effective light plot,
they've turned the cramped quarters on the Mary Miller stage into something that bolsters
what the actors are doing in the powerful ending. In an instant, an evening's worth of
chuckles and guffaws turn to gasps.
