I thoroughly recommend you to go and see the play. Headlined as EPIC – now that’s quite something to live up to. The play was set on one long day in a farm kitchen, there were children – the youngest was just 9 months, animals; rabbits and geese, being geese. The acting was so natural, instinctive and fabulous. It was dark, but managed to bring light, eerie yet down to earth and the aunts were brilliantly played. It was funny and tragic – all wrapped in one. And such recent history, which of course I was aware of but know so little, having blocked my ears to the politics at the age it was happening.
Book tickets – it’s playing till May 2018 and it’s a must see. You will know that I’m known for my enthusiasm, this is no exaggeration – a wonderful play – …at the Gielgud Theatre in Shaftesbury Avenue – an absolute must. With a standing ovation and the equivalent of three curtain calls – and with a capacity of just under a thousand captivated in the audience under the spell of Jezz Butterworth’s play… I was definitely not alone bolting to my feet with applause.
