A one-act set in 1938, Chamber Music tells the story of eight asylum inmates, who all identify as famous women from different historical periods. Joan of Arc - or someone who thinks herself Joan of Arc - marches in with a large wooden cross, nearly colliding with silent film actress Pearl White. Meanwhile, Isabella of Spain glares strikingly in her chair as Mozart's wife, Constanze, listens to the phonograph and bristles at the mention of Bach. All the while Amelia Earhart claims she is sane; she just wants to get out, but nobody believes her.

The manic physical shtick is perfectly delivered and both director and cast have hit the mark. This is not easy to achieve particularly within a static set but it is so well delivered that we were mesmerised and fully into all the goings-on. The laughs were hearty and came in the right places and the more I noticed each character's actions the more I laughed.
