In addition, the audience has to decide what's the best play of the evening.

The Delights Of Dogs And Problems Of People, Courtyard Theatre - Review

Starring Rosalind Blessed (Robyn) and Duncan Wikins (James), The Delights Of Dogs And Problems Of People is a multi-layered play. You would be forgiven for thinking the play's title suggests something quaint and little in the way of conflict. Nothing could be more misleading...
