Cash on Delivery by Michael Cooney
"One approaches amateur productions of farce with trepidation because they sag under a heavy hand.
This was definitely not the case with the director's fast and furious production of a DSS cheat trying to lie his way out of an increasingly complicated situation.
With a dedicated cast, he achieved the difficult task of making it look spontaneous.
If one had to criticise anything, it would be that it was almost too much of a good thing.
The laughter followed thick and fast, but some light and shade - a little more variation of pace - would have not gone amiss.
But the play was a rare find, and the audience buzzed with laughter.
Larf ? I nearly missed closing time"
