Jessica Ransom: Ransom’s Millions - One4Review
Jessica Ransom tells an almost plausible story of how a worker in a biscuit factory was tasked by her boss to give £1million to a person who had no links with him. This was due to some complex tenuous Italian connections.
This gives the set up for her to display her abilities as a comedy actress to play numerous characters who considered themselves worthy enough to walk of with the cash. Several of the characters were given one line descriptions but four gave longer, humorous monologues as their pitch to walk off with the cash. There was the avante-garde artist, the computer obsessed player of Quest, the female bounty hunter and the self help guru. This final character gives the show a lift with a volunteer from the audience benefiting from the advice offered.
A funny, well constructed hour of entertainment from a most talented actress but without any belly laugh moments.
