By each let this be heard,

Some with a flattering word...

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...

One of these was a play written in 1942 called An Apple A Day which gives some insight on Irish communities in the early 20th century, as well as reaffirming some old truths about human nature.
