Silly Cow by Ben Elton Print

Directed by Rod Felsch

"The silly cow of the title is TV columnist Doris, a battleship of a woman who sees her job to titillate her readers and infuriate actors with her venomous and personal attacks on celebrities. .... That is the premise of a very funny play with plenty of twists, one-liners and outside-of-the-square characters. There is little Ben Elton writes that is not funny and this is no exception. ... How things twist and turn towards the final scene I won’t go into, nor how it ends. You’ll have to go and see it to find that out. You’ll have a pleasant night at the theatre if you do."
