Offering two hours of compelling and arguably unmissable theatre combining humour and cliche together with many unpalatable home truths, End of the Pier is one of the most stimulating new plays this year.
This story contains no real heroes or villains. It is a brutal tale that focuses on the harsh realities of mortality, and our helplessness in grief and the emotional complexities of its process. This production tells it very well, especially in the quietest of scenes. A Monster Calls is not to be missed.
