There are two vital ingredients for good comedy. One is a sharp, funny script, and the other is performers with great comic ability. One For The Road at The Mill at Sonning has both in spades…
Pauline and Dennis are played by real-life husband and wife Lynette McMorrough and Nick Wilton and they give the show everything they have got.
As the play reaches the heights of farce and manic energy, this pair of very experienced and talented comics show an equisite sense of timing and control…
This is one of the best productions I have ever seen at The Mill, which is renowned for its comedy shows.

Nick Wilton is splendid as the man of the house, a Joni Mitchell fan approaching his 40th birthday and being given records by John Denver, his pet hate. Like an overgrown schoolboy he has a yen to take to the open road, leaving everything behind, especially the garden gnomes, which he has secretly been vandalising as an outlet for his frustration with life and its unfulfilled promise…
Well directed by Ron Aldridge, all the cast give excellent performances.
Sheila Tracy, The Stage
Nick Wilton is wonderful as Dennis, on the surface a “naughty schoolboy” who will not toe the line to help his wife’s desperate bid to be up wih the Joneses.
He also does a superb “Parkinson”, which more than deserved the tumultuous applause.
This is a great evening’s entertainment, with plenty of laughs as the cast don’t waste a line in the delicious script.
