Goodness me, I loved this play. When I booked the tickets months ago, the cast list hadn’t been released and I had no idea who I’d be going to see on stage. I was delighted when I arrived to find the amazing Mark Strong and Nicola Walker in the lead roles of Eddie and Beatrice, both of whom I have seen and loved in roles on the small and big screens. They and the rest of the cast did a remarkable job of bringing a challenging play to life, and despite having read it several times, I found myself coming away re-considering my interpretation of events thanks to Strong’s powerful, sympathetic performance. If you can get to London between now and the end of the run, I can’t recommend this highly enough. – Rachel
