WILD – Hampstead Theatre

In London theatre, Opinion, Plays, Reviews by Libby PurvesLeave a Comment

God bless a playwright you can’t predict. Mike Bartlett’s King Charles III was founded on a pretty simple idea, and a frankly rather jejune imagining about the Royal family; it transferred up West and to America amid huge plaudits. This one by contrast is rich in important, complex ideas and riskily surreal conversations, and is most unlikely to transfer: not least because of a certain extraordinary, unexpected technical coup de theatre in the last ten of its hundred minutes.
