D'Alexander Ostrovsky dans une nouvelle version d'Alan Ayckboum (1999)

Presse : THE EVENING STANDARD said "A glorious swoop of vintage comedy. " THE TIMES says "De la Tour plays Raisa with such wit and force, combining calculation, coquettishness and iciness of spirit, that you find yourself laughing at her, wincing from her, yet believing her horribly real." THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says "Anthony Page's Lyttelton production is ludicriously leisurely for a light entertainment... What saves the evening is the liveliness of Ayckbourn's translation and the excellence of the leading performances. " THE GUARDIAN says, " Ostrovsky's marvellous work has the exuberant madness of the best Russian comedy." THE INDEPENDENT says, "Francis De La Tour is on top form." JANE EDWARDES of TIME OUT says " Anthony Page's scrupulous production never goes so far over the top that it loses touch with the grim existence of those who are dependent on the kindness of others." PETER HEPPLE of THE STAGE says, "This is a play that one feels might have been funnier and sharper." The show received a bad review from THE FINANCIAL TIMES, which by the way I totally disagree with, saying, "None of the performances is quite good enough... "
