The Way of the World
By William Congreve
Aldwych Theatre, London, 24th January 1978
…Michael Pennington, a quieter Mirabell than usual and all the better for it, is
a perfect partner.
The strength of this production is in the partnership of Judi Dench and Michael Pennington
The famous scene, where…they bargain over the conditions of marriage, is spellbinding.
…These two performances are among the best I’ve seen in this theatre: a tour de force…
…eloquently quiet Mirabell, his best work for the RSC..
The unnerving thing about Mr Pennington’s performance is its apparent sincerity..
