Long and continuous applause to Beryl Rickard for her characters work as a Cockney 'slavey' in Brisbane Repertory Theatre Society's production of 'The Woman and The Walnut Tree' last week. In addition to her polished acting Miss Rickard used a throaty accent as true as the tones you hear within the sound of Bow Bells. The incredible fiction that she kept her job in the same household for years merely enhanced the opportunity for the display of first-rate acting.
