My Year Without Sex ***1/2 (The Courthouse until Sunday, March 16, 2008)

March 5, 2008

“Mrs Winifred Tickletext, widow and past president of the Pembleworth Ladies Society, is travelling Europe in the footsteps of Apostle Paul. Very British, very prudish and totally starved of sex, she causes chaos wherever she goes.” Thus reads the blurb for the show.
There is no doubt this one-woman show is a great acting challenge and Jessica Gerger does a magnificent job playing half a dozen different characters, while whizzing about a versatile set.

The show is classic “farce” in which our larger-than-life heroine, Mrs Tickletext, lurches from one “Carry On” style scenario to another.
