Where there's a will @ Rangashankara

Finally after a rather long break, thought I'd catch a play again at Rangashankara, and luckily there was one playing with decent reviews.

Quite enjoyed the play, ( not to mention the first day in a long long time, when I actually went all over town, and didn't feel dead) . A rather overbearing rich  man tries to bend his family to his way of thinking, although his wife , son and daughter in law don't seem to be quite falling in line. In fact his son just seems to be waiting to get his hands on the money. But our wily old man has made other plans.. but then we know what they say about the best laid plans..

Its a tongue in cheek look at the characters, as they jostle for power and control, and the dialogues are mostly a laugh a minute. Barring a brief interlude of 2-3 minutes much later in the day when the tone dipped ( really didn't think that jelled with the rest of the play), most of the play is really enjoyable, with a clever sub-text which isn't too much in your face.

A good watch overall.
