This play/production at the Bush Theatre made for a very good evening.
The communications head for a giant energy company faces issues of climate change in the discomfort of his own increasingly dysfunctional household. This sort of play is fun but it also makes you think. The Bush does this sort of play well.
It didn’t get fabulous reviews, despite the fact that we really liked it:
- Sarah Hemming in the FT quite liked it…;
- ...as did Michael Billington in the Guardian, but he thought it insufficiently deep;
- …while Stephen Collins at British Theatre really didn’t like the play/production;
- …and Michael Coveney at Whats On Stage wanted to like it more than he did.
Oh well. We did.
