Mark Shenton offers reviews, news, interviews and tweets of the week from the West End, Broadway and beyond.
Joanna Murray-Smith’s 2003 play Honour is surprisingly relevant to the current #MeToo debate while highlighting a generational division over the question of love and fidelity.
The best interaction in Honour at the Park Theatre is between Imogen Stubbs and Katie Brayben, largely very convincing as the sharp journalist and they trade some good points about agency and entitlement and some women’s self-deluding complicity in men’s agendas – like career and fatherhood.
‘There’s no fool like an old fool’ is an adage that sums up much of Honour, now playing at the Park Theatre. The play introduces Henry Goodman and Imogen Stubbs as married couple George and Honour.
Paul Robinson’s production of Honour at the Park Theatre really captures the perceptiveness of the writing by bringing together a strong cast to bring the characters effectively to life.
Honour is an old story indeed – and an artfully updated 1995 play by Joanna Murray-Smith – but so beautifully performed in Paul Robinson’s austerely set production that it feels very up to date.
