The Finborough has a rich and noble history of rediscovering lost dramatic gems, alongside their programme of new work (this year’s Bacon and Pennyroyal are two of my favourite new plays since theatres reopened post-pandemic), and Kate O’Brien’s family tragicomedy Distinguished Villa, seldom seen since its 1926 premiere, continues that line of programming.
With Go Bang Your Tambourine, the Finborough Theatre has once more succeeded in digging out a purportedly dated play and bringing it to life in a manner which is faithful to the playwright but does not alienate a modern audience. Kudos to them.
