It was good to see live acting back on the stage at Sibford after a gap of 6 – 7 years. Welcome to The Sibberts, who, in the play entitled “A Lady Mislaid” by Kenneth Horne, drew a full house on both Friday and Saturday nights. The audience assembled in hopeful expectation and was not disappointed.
The play was a light comedy, which, nonetheless, had its moments of tension, and the mystery was finally revealed in an amusing way. It was efficiently produced by David Foulds. Erica Wolfenden and Cheryl James played two strongly contrasted sisters. Cheryl especially deserves praise for her characterisation of a budding writer of artistic temperament.
All the players maintained their parts consistently. Elaine Hobday drew many laughs as the Daily Help, and Karen Reynolds in her first appearance on any stage was quite charming and we look forward to seeing her again.
The whole production promises well for the future and congratulations go to Erica Wolfenden who started the ball rolling.
Well done – The Sibberts! Keep Going!
