It’s been almost 30 years since two amateur theatre groups merged to form Bedford Players, and the company has served up a lot of laughs in those three decades. Their latest production Move Over Mrs. Markham is a fine example of the kind of bawdy farce that their audiences love. Mrs. Markham is filled with all the expected improbable plot twists, mistaken identities and innuendo filled jokes. Although casting can sometimes be uneven in community theatre circles, I’d have to say the talent on this production is uniformly impressive. Katherine Tufts is particularly delightful as a dog-obsessed children’s author. She manages to transform her facial expressions into something reminiscent of a character from Wallace and Gromit. English accents are very wisely used as the seasoning rather than the meat, and director Robin Saywood keeps the action moving apace. It all adds up to a cracking good time. -Kate Watson
