I’d already seen the first two instalments of this old fashioned radio-style comedy by the Misfits of London, so I more or less knew what to expect from the third. The Gin Chronicles at Sea sees the intrepid detective duo of John Jobling and Doris Golightly embark on a transatlantic cruise, where they get caught up in yet another gin-related mystery.
As always, the performers – four actors and a Foley artist – were impressive, each taking on a number of characters and switching accents at will. Some of the effects were very clever, especially the ‘under the sea’ scenes. As always, it was a hugely entertaining piece of theatre.
