Love In A Mist
by Kenneth Horne, directed by Ken Clarke
27-30 July 2011
Two couples – one married, one not – find themselves stranded overnight in a farmhouse in Devon under the watchful eye of the garrulous farmer’s wife and the taciturn farmer. Reduced to reading magazines about duck husbandry, their relationships unravel and then knit together again. Will love triumph over old-fashioned morality, or will an accommodation be found?
Kenneth Horne (not he of Round The Horne) was a writer of comic plays in the 1940s and 50s. The Society followed this up with Horne’s A Lady Mislaid in 2017.
Rob Chambers, a Society regular in the 2000s, returned for the first time since 2005, while Ken Clarke made his directorial debut. Also making his debut was David Pascoe. Dominica Winter gave her last of eight performances.
