Review: Ward 7 at Redgrave Theatre by Gerry Parker
WRITER and broadcaster Kate Spencer returned to her native city of Bristol, which she left in 1996 to emigrate to New Zealand, with a play that she completed while on a cruise ship.
The setting is a ward, which we later learn is full of patients suffering from multi personality disorder.
The five-strong all-female cast cope well with creating 11 different characters, despite the fact that there are times when some of them have to make a hasty exit almost mid speech.
There were also few chances to develop some subtle humour

Deborah Meredith, Joanna Courtney and Janet Adams happily tackled three characters apiece, Deborah playing both halves of a lesbian partnership, Joanna making a particularly good job of portraying a mature woman regressing into childhood. Jenny Coverack, nicely convincing as Hilda – a patient with the onset of Alzheimer's disease – and Laura Fautley's brusque doctor completed a cast which worked well as a team.
