Visits to the Coronet Theatre, until recently known as The Print Room at the Coronet, make me miss the days when I lived in Notting Hill (or rather, near enough, Ladbroke Grove). Recently, I returned to chair a post-show Q&A at the world premiere of Alix Sobler’s The Glass Piano, specially programmed to launch this fresh chapter in the building’s history.
Alix Sobler’s new play The Glass Piano is a full-length fairy tale based on the true case of Princess Alexandra of Bavaria, born in 1826, who convinced herself that as a child she had swallowed a full-size, glass, grand piano.
As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, on Wednesday 8 May 2019, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock talks to the company of the UK premiere of The Glass Piano, running at The Print Room at the Coronet. Got any questions?
New play about a forgotten First World War poet stages both the passion of youth and the pity of war.
