‘My My How Nice’ presents two impeccable dark comedic thrillers

If performances of My My How Nice Productions’ latest offering, ‘Murder in Two Parts’ at the Bravo! Theatre, are anything like the dress rehearsal I saw, the audiences will be thrilled! 

Expertly directed by theater and film professional Bernadette Jones, it features two female characters in each of two one-act dark comedies about power, passion and possibly more than one murder.

All aspects of these two contrasting, occasionally similar shows are exceptionally well done: from Alan Marsh’s inspired two-set design and Leslie Yanko’s costumes, all the way to the perceptive and skillful performances of former professional actors Jayme Littlejohn and Roseann Wilshere.

The first play is “Two Sisters” by Caroline Harding, set in the 1880s. Without giving too much away, it begins after the shocking discovery that coffins have been delivered to the sisters’ homes. The plot surrounds their reminiscences as they try to unravel the reason for this unpleasant and unexplained delivery. Played deadpan it is extremely funny and occasionally poignant.
