Marie McCarthy’s Clapham Omnibus venue never ceases to surprise. Dedicated, as befits its previous life as a library, to storytelling in all its various forms, Scott Le Crass’ revival of Simon Stephens’ Country Music is itself a revelation.
Written by Simon Stephens and directed by Scott Le Crass, Country Music examines the life of a young offender over a span of 17 years.
A sensational performance from Cary Crankson anchors a powerful production of Simon Stephens’ Country Music at Clapham’s Omnibus Theatre.
There is much to be gleaned from the subtlety of Country Music but it requires work and attention to seek it out.
The plot of Country Music may at times be slightly muddled, but the sense of waste and irretrievable loss at its heart comes through powerfully in this excellent revival.
