Are morals dropped at the first sign of trouble and civilised people will ‘devour’ each other? Written by Cordelia Lynn and directed by James Macdonald, One For Sorrow examines this hypothesis up close.
For all my scepticism about the views expressed by some characters, I decidedly think this is impressive work from a playwright to be taken seriously and it’s only very slightly too long and under-resolved.
It could be the November 2015 Paris terror attacks, except this time it’s happening in London. And it is also the powerful start of Cordelia Lynn’s new play, One for Sorrow, which has just opened at the Royal Court’s upstairs studio space.
