Pleasant evening, cool enough for layers and jackets but not blankets, although they are available, as well as seat cushions for this intimate outdoor amphitheater. We enjoyed the play and it's quirky British-accented actors, and creative set depicting a dining area of their home, the back yard and adjacent sports field. The plot's a bit thin, and love triangle/misunderstanding's not so believable, although it's clear that the young woman makes the correct decision at the very end. The company does a good job so it's a lighthearted and fun evening out under the stars.
The suburban house of the Bakers’ adjoins a recreation field, which is useful since football and cricket play a large part in the story. Peter, who works for Graham, brings his fiancee to the house and Graham, as usual, makes a bee line for her. However, it is Mrs. Baker’s brother, Leonard, to whom Joan strays. Leonard, poetic, a fumbler, who moons around holding conversations with the garden gnome, has always roused the bullying Graham’s malice and scorn, who is horrified when he catches the younger man very much with Joan. Joan and Mrs. Baker decide that Leonard must tell Peter at once about the relationship and he tries, half heartedly, to do so, and the result is wholly unexpected, as Peter’s cricket and football supersede all other considerations in his sports mad mind.
