Review: The Old Inn
The Old Inn by Bettine Manktelow
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
The Old Inn is an old-fashioned, workmanlike play that makes a decent choice for amateur drama. There's nothing much bad about it: the characters are standard types but well-enough created and the plot is sound. I enjoyed it well enough, but the last half-hour could have been cut to ten minutes as character after character re-enters to tie up every conceivable loose end, even irrelevant ones or ones that were so obvious that the audience had already worked them out.
