The Bush Theatre
Designer: Nathalie Gibbs
Lighting Designer: Matthew Atwood
Composer: Simon Slater
Cast: Eric Loren, Madeleine Potter, Adrian Rawlins, Michael Simkins, Debora Weston
The play is sensitively directed by Sarah Esdaile, who brings out the pain lurking under the high gloss living.
Esdaile’s production does Silver proud on his first British outing. …the production has both pace and delicacy. ..this is a balanced, intelligent and thoroughly enjoyable work.
Sarah Esdaile’s production and a sharp cast never let the fall-out get sentimental…it’s a wicked, wisecracking couple of hours.
Independent on Sunday
Neatly directed by Sarah Esdaile, and mixed with heady performances from a juicy cast. This play is like a cocktail with a delayed impact. One or two scenes hit you immediately, then the rest just seep into your system.
After the laughter’s over then the taste of other people’s neuroses stays with you for a long time.
