The twist in Plaid Tidings at London’s Bridge House Theatre is, of course, that the stars are dead, killed in a car crash. But when has a trivial mishap like that ever stopped a group from still making it big?
The gingham tablecloths set the tone for Forever Plaid, currently downstairs at St James’ Studio. Look closely and the “menu cards” are actually the evening’s set list. If it wasn’t for the excellent performances on display, all that would be missing would be a juke-box to seal the illusion of 1960’s Americana that Forever Plaid so carefully re-creates.
