Rufus Sewell carried the play with energy and wit, living the part every moment. He is handsome and talented and generous. Any aspiring actor please see this show. The women were sometimes saying lines. Best to read the play before seeing it.
I agree with the review - why did such quality actors agree to take these roles - it was pretentious rubbish - glad we only paid £10 for our seats in the back row stalls - we could see and hear everything. It ended so abruptly and left you wondering what was that all about.
A typically obscure play about u reliable memories and power games between men and women. We were gripped but many coughers and paper rustlers clearly weren't. I love Rickson's work but found this just a little too slow and mannered, despite the starry cast.
What a privilege to see three consumate actors doing what they do best, acting their sock off! All three gave of their best (in my eyes at least) and held the audience in the palms of their hands - not easy with a straight 80 minute performance, no interval. I arrived already in awe of the (let's be totally honest) absolutely divine Rufus Sewell, and a huge admirer of Kristin Scott Thomas. The audience were well rewarded for their ticket prices. Lia Williams was a delight and all three actors well matched. The adorable Mr Sewell even came out to sign autographs in the FREEEEZING wind, with a wonderful smile and charm to spare. Cannot recommend this play highly enough - an absolute treat
A well written plot poorly presented.
Absolutely loved it. I thought Rufus Sewell and C.S.Thomas were superb and will definitely try and see it again. Tell your friends, go and see it.
A somewhat impenetrable but strangely brilliant play superbly acted and staged. K S-T mesmeric as the old friend and Lia William's end scene utterly compelling. Occasionally indistinct diction the only flaw. Don't miss
I love this production. The Actors really engage with the material and the shifts in atmosphere with certain lines are chilling, enthralling and captivating.
You can't see Pinter and come away from it immediately with a reflective response. You have to mull over the little information Pinter has purposefully delivered. If you are watching a play for the actor or actress in them, you're doing theatre wrong.
Come see this because it gets your brain cells clicking, it makes you feel uncomfortable but in a completely powerful way. I don't go to theatre to just laugh, sometimes I want to be scratching my head and to feel new things.
Theatre at its very best. The concept is the work of a genius. We will go again to see the role reversals,
Worth every penny.
Fascinating -- so much so, that we may well go again, to see the women playing their alternative parts (and to delve a little deeper...).
Ah yes, I remember it well -- if you know that song, you'll get an inkling of where Pinter was coming from...
