review of proof

by Alan Nelson I fell in love with David Auburn’s play the first time I saw it. But as it ended, I turned to my then 12-year-old son and saw he had his mouth open. “Is that it?” he said. “They talk about maths for two hours and then it finishes?” So, I understand that despite its Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award, a play seemingly about maths and academia with a soppy love story thrown in is not an easy […]

review of female transport

by Patrick Neylan Like the 19th Century prison ship bound for Australia where it’s set, Steve Gooch’s Female Transport creaks and leaks a little with age. Written in 1974, it now suffers by comparison with Timberlake Wertenbaker’s Our Country’s Good, written a decade and a half later and covering much the same themes only with more depth. But ‘by comparison’ is the crucial phrase here. Female Transport is by no means a bad play and the audiences enjoyed the unusual […]

review of bad jews

by Patrick Neylan Bad Jews is a comedy, as you’d expect from those perennial comedy tropes: death, Zionism and the Holocaust. The set-up is simple: Holocaust survivor Poppy has died, and the family has gathered for his funeral. Into a New York hotel room are squeezed prickly, zealous Diana – who prefers to go by the Hebrew variant Daphna – and her cousin Jonah. Jess Jenner’s Daphna is a whirlwind of manipulation as she bullies Jonah – played by Robert […]

review of private lives

by richard stewart Right everyone, put down the mince pies and sherry: it’s time for a brand-new year at Bromley Little Theatre. The 2018 season has officially begun and brings with it another set of shows from your favourite North Street bakery-turned-playhouse. 2018 is looking to be a year themed on ‘family’: a casual glance down the season and nearly every play seems to be about sisters, parents, wives, husbands, relationships among friends and every other possible combination. It only […]
