This is an excellent comedy written by Arnold Ridley of Dad's Army fame. The story line is a little dated but the excellent cast bring it to life as though it has just been written. If you like vintage comedy this is well worth listening to.

Originally written as a stage play, and a great story it is, though it doesn’t appear enough thought was made when recording it as an audio play - if any changes were made at all. For example:
Occasionally it was difficult to distinguish between some characters as they sounded the same - not enough vocal differentiation
Towards the end a budgie is mentioned; only during the second time of listening did I pick up the briefest of mentions that Miss Bourne had with her a pet bird. It’s fine if watching it as a stage play as you can see it, but in audio you need to be told
And lastly the actor who voiced Peggy Murdock was very flat - lacked charisma
With some small changes and a different cast it could be truly wonderful audio play, but as it stands it is only a 3*.
