The Telegraph (UK)
December 18th, 2021

A hit for Hampstead in 1999, with Maureen Lipman in the title role, and Tamsin Greig now doing the honours in a fresh revival, Plater’s play asserts a simple truth about its subject. She barely cared about conventional success, put Art on a pedestal.

A captivating central performance from Tamsin Greig just about lifts Alan Plater’s portrait of literary agent Peggy Ramsay into something more than an act of theatrical navel gazing.

Tamsin Greig, as Peggy, plays her as a posh, flouncing and vaguely rakish woman with a witty intelligence. But even Greig’s charisma cannot save this play from its dated ideas and sleepy drama.

It’s an articulation of resilience very necessary in these times of shuttering stages, making the revival an appropriate reaffirmation of theatre, indeed of life itself. A seasonal treat.
