Superb! Bonkers cast playing OTT "Off the wall" sureal
Outrageous Mervin Peake at its best , and the BBC didn't stint on production either Played up superbly by a star studded cast for all its worth... Its not often actors get a chance like this. Its certainly not a “nice” play in parts, but it romps along with all kinds of twists and turns,dark humour,cruelty ,death, and unpleasantness waiting around every corner...even kids are not spared a nasty surprise...Christopher Lee is wonderful, as is Secretary played completely OTT by Warren Mitchell, Stephan Fry, is almost himself... If you like Greenway, you will love this. Its a bit like a sumptuous, lavish period version of “Delicatessen” in the first chapter, and a very macabre “Alice in wonderland” only Alice is played by a boy for the rest of the time... Groan is the name!
who else but the BBC could produce , such a high quality series , the casting brilliant, also the character portrayal, i was browsing e bay and found this DVD which i was delighted to recieve and will not tire of, thank you e bay for the ability to do this, I would recommend it to anyone, also that they should read the book too, PAJH1805
