Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 10. 1965.



Downstage recently presented us with Victoria students Roger Hall, Stephen Whitehouse and Richard Cathie in a revue called "Three Is A Crowd"—almost with the air of a magician who has produced (to his own surprise) a successful rabbit.

There was probably a danger that this revue would sound ironically like an illustration for the preceding production of the evening, "Beckett's Happy Days." But "Three Is A Crowd" did not continue the spectre of intellectual decline—it stood firmly against it, determined in its right to rubbish anything, if possible without justification.

Still, it would not do to take the thing too seriously. The actors played for laughs and, as a result, "Three Is A Crowd" was rude, irresponsible, and very funny.
