What do you get if you mix two pals, a trampette and a puzzle? Antler’s hit play about friendship and obsession Lands, as you can see from Helen Murray’s fabulous pictures (below). Take a look, then get booking!
Originally a hit at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe, the play has bounced its way to west London’s Bush Theatre where it currently has audiences jumping for joy. No doubt it will continue to do so until the end of its run on 1 December 2018.
Lands is the tale of two friends. One can’t stop bouncing on a mini trampoline. The other is struggling her way through a 1,000-piece jigsaw. They’ve been together, here, for a long time. They are happy here. But there’s a problem. It’s a massive problem and soon they’re going to have to talk about it…
The production stars Leah Brotherhead and Sophie Steer as Leah and Sophie. Brotherhead boasts credits including Two Gentlemen of Verona (Shakespeare’s Globe) and Wolf Hall & Bring Up The Bodies (Royal Shakespeare Company), while Steer previously appeared in Breach Theatre’s Tank and Kandinsky Theatre’s Still Ill.
Jaz Woodcock-Stewart directs the show. She previously directed Antler’s Days Like This, If I Were Me and This Way Up. As an assistant director, her credits include Network (National Theatre) David Bowie musical Lazarus and Measure For Measure (Young Vic).
Lands runs until 1 December at Bush Theatre, 7 Uxbridge Rd, Shepherd’s Bush, London W12 8LJ. Performances are Mondays to Saturdays at 7.45pm, with Wednesday and Saturday matinees at 2.45pm. Tickets are priced £15-£20. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
