Comedy about the Dangers of Religion
23 December 2017 | by l_rawjalaurenceSee all my reviews

A comedy about the risks associated with excessive religion. Set in Manchester, railway cleaner Edgar (Alfred Lynch) is faced with a crisis. Loyal to his widowed dad (Jimmy Jewel) and going out with girlfriend Phoebe (Yootha Joyce) for the previous eight years, he admits to himself that he has never bad a woman. He seeks counsel at work from his mate Trevor (Richard Warwick), who advised him to travel on a dirty weekend to London. This is a major step, but Edgar takes it, and ends up sharing digs with Trevor in Tottenham. By a stroke of luck he ends up meeting a woman Mrs Bewley (Yootha Joyce), and his life changes forever. The play concentrates on the extremes of Christianity, of a belief in infinite goodness and the sins associated with doing wrong. Edgar is kept on a short leash by his father and Phyllis - so much so that the London trip is perceived as a release for him. When he returns to Manchester, he has changed completely for the better: meanwhile Phyllis and his father have fallen in love. Clearly a change is as good as a rest for everyone.
