Are you in a happy relationship? An unhappy one? Or just a normal one with standard-fare ups and downs? Ever thought about cheating on your partner? Owen McCafferty’s play Unfaithful, now in its London premiere run at Found111 in Charing Cross Road, could either be viewed as either a cautionary tale or a call to action.
Strong performances from Sean Campion and Niamh Cusack make up for the unbalance between the focus on two very different couples… Owen McCafferty’s latest play shows the turning points in two very different couples relationships and how one event can change your outlook in life.
Niamh Cusack as Joan is fantastic. Veering from vitriolic to sardonic, she is a pleasure to watch, especially in her interactions with Tom (Sean Campion), which have a weariness and familiarity borne of long exposure to one another.
With constant depressing news in the wider world, theatre news offers a respite. Recent news to celebrate includes Mark Rylance’s West End return, the London premiere of Owen McCafferty’s Unfaithful, Samuel Beckett tribute No’s Knife and more…
Sean Campion, Niamh Cusack, Ruta Gedmintas and Matthew Lewis star in the London premiere of Owen McCafferty’s Unfaithful, running at Found111 for six weeks from 25 August 2016.
