Carrying on a new series, our editor Lisa Martland picks out seven of her Top Picks from the last week of theatre (2-9 June 2019). Amidst her top choices are Maryam Philpott’s journey back to a time of political optimism in The Wardrobe Ensemble’s Education, Education, Education at Trafalgar Studios.
Beneath the Blue Rinse, running at London’s Park Theatre – along with a Glover short called The Answer – is a morality tale where the elderly get their own back on a society that would rather forget they existed.
Beneath the Blue Rinse is polemical; packed with scathingly humorous and myth-busting scenes and information about the lives of older people.
Tom Glover’s play Beneath The Blue Rinse successfully and hilariously breaks through stereotypes relating to how people see the elderly.
