So there’s more to Uxbridge than the cricket ground.
Seriously, Janie and I both really liked this play. Simon Stephens is one of our favourite playwrights these days and this one worked really well in the Cottesloe for us.
The eponymous lead is a big part; Lesley Sharp is a correspondingly big part actress who was able to deliver big time on this play/production.
- Michael Billington in the Guardian talks up Lesley Sharp and that lead part, but seems less sure about the play – click here;
- Paul Taylor in the Independent seems to share our positive views on the part, the play and the production – click here;
- Whatsonstage.com did an excellent round up of the various reviews – check that out by clicking here.
Very shocking in parts and also very moving.
