AFTER THE PERFORMANCE George: Well, how did you enjoy the play, Margaret? Margaret: Oh, enormously! I thought the production was really brilliant, and so was the acting.

George: If Nickolson hadn't been ill, it would have been even better. They say he's wonderful in the part of the inspector.

Margaret But his understudy was very good too, particularly in the last act. Of course, the plot was rather absurd...

George: It usually is in detective plays.

Margaret: Take the wife, for instance. She didn't behave like a normal human being at all. If she had only owned up to her husband, he would have settled the whole business in no time.


George: But she was supposed to be a dumb blonde. And if she hadn't been, there wouldn't have been a plot, would there?

WORD o- FILE artistry ['a:tistri] craftsmanship [’kra:ftsmanjip] a failure ['feilja] insight [’msait] performance [pa’faimans] a shape [jeip] to confess [kan'fes] contemporary [kan'temprari]

Margaret: And you know, there wouldn't have been a second murder if the inspector hadn't told everybody about his plans.

George: But then the audience would have had to go home at the end of the first act.

Margaret: Then take that episode with the revolver. If he had had any sense, he would have told his wife about the gun instead of trying to hide it.

George: It's a pity you didn't write the play, Margaret. If you had, you would have made a much better job of it. The wife would have confessed to her husband, he would have told the inspector, and there wouldn't have been any corpses. A much better play altogether. Not a thriller, of course...
