A terrific revival of Arinzé Kene’s 2011 coming-of-age drama Little Baby Jesus is mind-glowingly lyrical, energetic and wise.
Wunderkind actor-writer Arinzé Kene (how can one man be so talented?) knocks it out of the park with the revival of his 2011 play Little Baby Jesus.
Very well-deserved West end transfer for thrilling new play about ethics in the age of the internet… How well do parents know their kids? Especially their teenage kids. Jack appears to be a nice, well-spoken 17-year-old youngster about to take his exams. You see, he has ambitions to study law at Durham University. His parents, David and Di, think he’s a normal boy and they are really proud of all of his hard work. And of his good grades. But, in James Fritz’s compelling 90-minute play, they are about to be disillusioned. And the trick is that we never get to see Jack: he remains offstage, so all we are left with is the reactions of his parents and friends.
Can four people’s lives be shattered when an abominable act, which took just Four Minutes Twelve Seconds, is filmed, later uploaded, and shared? This intelligent play demonstrates just that. Written by James Fritz which has just transferred from Hampstead Theatre to Trafalgar Studios 2 has you gripped from the start.
