I hadn’t expected something as playful as this. It’s mildly subversive in its way, pushing a little at the conventions of the genre. Vicky is a female Loki, a little goddess of mischief and chaos, The Prince is so over the top that he works. Emmy is a trouper in every sense.
I think this would make a great stage play. It’s one step away from farce, the characters are larger than life and there are some fine set pieces.
And, good grief, I’m now a Georgette Hayer fan. My teenage self would never have predicted that.
