Description

After their sell-out success last year with three Alan Bennett plays, BCP return with one of Alan Ayckbourn's most recent tragi-comedies. No Knowing has never been performed outside Scarborough – where it premiered to acclaim in 2016. You are invited to toast the apparently happy couple as Elspeth and Arthur celebrate their 40th anniversary. We go back to the previous Christmas and wince as their grown-up children reveal murky truths about both parents.

Sorry to say, but this is a terrible show. I think the script is probably ok, but it was delivered very badly indeed. I feel embarrassed for this group who have obviously invested and worked hard to bring this to the festival, but they are not ready for it. The acting is wooden, the props basic at best, wardrobe is farcical with the main female lead wearing a wig too old for the character and worn at a jaunty angle, the timing completely off, lighting terrible - half the cast are in darkness and I can't think of a redeeming feature.
