MRS ORWELL – Southwark Playhouse

In London theatre, Opinion, Plays, Reviews by Ian FosterLeave a Comment

Tony Cox’s play Mrs Orwell did sufficiently good business in its run at the Old Red Lion last month that it has quickly transferred south of the river, to the Southwark Playhouse for an additional few weeks. Based on actual events but with a fair measure of artistic license thrown in, as with all the best stories, it sheds light on the final weeks of George Orwell’s life.
