2,000 Feet Away by Anthony Weigh, Bush Theatre, 13 June 2008

Quite a shocking play centring around a man on a sex offenders’ register in small town USA. “Shocking” as in mood-affecting.

It was good drama, although in some ways lacked something dramatically given the quality of the material and the superb cast and crew lined up at the Bush of all places.

Here is the Bush’s stub for the production – click here.

We found this evening hard going on a Friday evening, but for the right reasons. The play really made us think about the subject matter; Janie and I were talking about it all weekend. That’s good theatre in our book, even if the play and production fall short of the “absolutely top notch” class.

Really good stuff from the Bush, this.
