Dangerous Corner; a pre-war soap

This weekend we went to see the last performance of a weeks run of J B Priestley's "Dangerous Corner" at the Theatre Royal Windsor.

A well performed, good tale; one in a series of Priestley's "Time" plays.

Charlie Brooks, of the soap "Eastenders" played Betty. The plot of the play, written in 1932, contained, in two hours of performance, all the necessary elements regulary portrayed in modern day soaps; theft, lies, adultery (hetero/homo), drugs, violence, and quite a lot of weeping & shouting!

No contest though; I prefer the 1932 version :-)
