Captain Drew On Leave
Captain Drew On Leave
When done well, Edwardian parlor comedies have a way of drawing you into a world of witty repartee and verbal gyrations, even innocent subterfuge wrapped in social grace, honor and respect - characteristics generally lacking in today's frontal and verbal assaulting society. Quotidian's production of Captain Drew on Leave displays the sweet innocence of a world gone by way of frilly hoop skirts and calling cards, smoking jackets and telegraphed messages instead of email and twitter. ah, those were the good old days, and Quotidian catapults you straight into its sumptuously attired parlor. Captain Drew got the surprise of his life when what started out as playful flirting with the very married Mrs. Moxon turns into genuine feelings of affection for her. The steady and reliable Steve LaRocque does a fine turn depicting the Captain's stately bearing, worldly detachment, humorous reactions and slow emotional transition. The character starts off being somewhat a rake who enjoys the conquests at sea as much as he does having a fair share of "female companionship" at every port. Drew is a man of class and taste as well as having a penchant to woo married women because they're vulnerable in needing affection and attention and can't latch onto him, a perfect combination, he explains to his nephew Earnest White, played to Edwardian perfection by Daniel Corey.
