INTIMACY AT 8.30 A revue by PETER MYERS, ALEC GRAHAME and DAVID CLIMIE : Music by JOHN PRITCHETT and RONALD CASS. : Directed by MICHAEL CHARNLEY Criterion Theatre, London - 29 April, 1954 Cast: Joan Heal, Joan Sims, Dilys Lay, Aud Johansen, Eleanor Fazan, Ronnie Stevens, Digby Woolfe, Geoffrey Hibbert, Ron Moody and Peter Felgate. Directed by Michael Charnley Costumes by Hilary Virgo and Rosemary Carvil Settings by Jefferson Strong Synopsis THIS OUTSTANDINGLY successful and lively intimate revue had no rival among its contemporaries for speed and wit. The team responsible, namely, Peter Myers, Alec Grahame, David Climie, John Pritchett and Ronald Cass. with Michael Charnley producing, scored heavily in a show that really knew no dull moments. Among the best items were Joan Heal in " Lady with the Lamp," a skit on a fashionable socialite's recent visit to a mine; Ronnie Stevens in " Largo it Barbiere." a classically tuneful London barber's apologia; Joan Sims in "Siren Song" in which passengers at Woking are lured by the seductions of the station announcer's voice, and all the company in "Good Book and Lyrics" guying a Hollywood biblical film production, and "Nights of Blackness," a cleverly produced and original flashback to London's blackout days.
