Review: Timothy Ramsden 7 April.
Direct dramaturgical path beats taking the dramatic scenic rouAdmirably, DukesÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â™ Artistic Director Joe Sumsion, finding himself with a 50-minute script about two male friends walking in the Lake District, invited eight women playwrights to suggest a companion one-acter about two female fell-walkers. Lisa Evans came out top.
An experienced dramatist, her Glory, Glory outpaces MoorhouseÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â™s The Gift in its range, theatrical sophiation and the issues it raises. Yet itÃ¢Â€Â™s the simpler play that has the more direct impact.
