PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

September 5 - October 11 on the Cabaret Stage

A young bride who lives above a bank with her husband who is the assistant manager, innocently sends a mail order off for some Scandinavian glassware. What comes is Scandinavian pornography. The plot revolves around what is to be done with the veritable floods of pornography, photographs, books, films and eventually girls that threaten to engulf this happy couple. The matter is considerably complicated by the man's mother, his boss, a visiting bank inspector, a police superintendent and a muddled friend who does everything wrong in his reluctant efforts to set everything right, all of which works up to a hilarious ending of closed or slamming doors. This farce ran in London over eight years and also delighted Broadway audiences.

This show has been submitted to the MAT Awards for the 2008/2009 season.

Since I love theater in all its forms, from professional to amateur, friends are always dragging me (happily, of course) to their kids' recitals and plays, performance's their fiance, brother, sister, mother, father acted in/directed or sold concessions at! And I've loved each of these experiences for what they were.

So I was thrilled and elated to be invited to a theater that I didn't think I knew, very close to my East Cobb Home. It turns out that the Rosewater Theatre is in the old Roswell Village Playhouse -- and I'm thrilled that this is once again a place to enjoy live theater. It's undergone a wonderful renovation and is now a beautiful two theater space.

That said, I have to say that I enjoyed this production not so much. And I'm at a loss to figure out why!
It's a very funny piece of theater and the performance certainly got a lot of laughs. And each of the individual characters were well cast and well played. Their timing was dead on, they seemed to interact
together well, but they didn't seem to, well, connect! I was a tiny bit underwhelmed, but I may have caught the performance on an off night.

I DO plan to return for any and all other offerings at this unique little venue. I want to do my part to support local theatre - ad like I said, I really couldn't put a finger on why this production didn't gel for me.In fact, maybe it was just me. After all, I did laugh quite a bit -- and that was the purpose of the evening. Maybe I set my expectations to an unreasonably high level after experiencing the unexpectedly good Shakespearean performance I saw last week.

I hope I haven't turned anyone off to "No Sex Please, We're Brittish." It's still very fine theater -- and quite a fun way to spend your entertainment dollar. I plan to return to the Rosewater for every offering. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
