21/1/09, Tricycle.

Missed it: had to work.

D's verdict: very funny, played at full tilt but still creaked a bit, proper farce. David Haigh very good as the policeman Truscott, played with a lot of bluster and lurching about in three-piece suit and raincoat. When it first came out the body on stage must have been pushing the boundaries, but nowadays has lost its shock value. On the other hand the violence -- when the policeman beats up the son -- really surprised her and was still shocking: "It was such a contrast to what you think you're watching".
