LBO Review: Half A Sixpence

LBO Review: Half A Sixpence

Originally published on London Box Office


Charlie Stemp perfectly personifies the wholesome, cheeky chappy nature that Half A Sixpence audiences know and love. As main protagonist Arthur Kipps, it is easy to see why, even as kids, he wins the heart of adventurous tomboy Ann Pornick (Devon-Elise Johnson) and likewise, once all grown up his natural affability turns the head of self-assured upper class lady Miss Helen Walsingham (Emma Williams). Yet David Heneker and Beverley Cross’ original character Kipps, whilst being the apple of everyone’s eye, is ultimately a bit of a rogue – stuck between two women and unable to choose, he tries to have his cake and eat it too. Most male characters written today would never get away with such a feat, but Julian Fellowes’ rewritten hero appears sweet and simple, a bit of a bumbling fool that comes across a stroke of luck and propelled into the upper echelons of society, so seems to come out of it all smelling of roses. He is depicted with such a likeability that he can be forgiven anything – Stemp wins his audience over completely.
