I finally caught up with Michael Longhurst’s restaging of his 2012 Royal Court production of Nick Payne’s Constellations, a gem of a two-hander.
The Donmar West End production of Constellations launches its first two casts in Sheila Atim and Ivanno Jeremiah and Peter Capaldi and Zoë Wanamaker at the Vaudeville Theatre.
Nick Payne’s infinitely fascinating and multi-faceted 2012 play about the endless possibilities of life (and facing death) is perfectly expressed in a revival of director Michael Longhurst’s original production that has now been cast in four different age, race and gender combinations that itself yields multiple meanings.
Donmar Warehouse artistic director Michael Longhurst will revive his acclaimed Royal Court, West End and Broadway production of Nick Payne’s Constellations which will run at the West End’s Vaudeville Theatre from 18 June to 12 September 2021.
A pleasure to see Zoë Wanamaker and Zrinka Cvitešić onstage but they deserve a much better play than Two Ladies at the Bridge Theatre.
There’s excellent acting in Two Ladies, a play that tickles the senses and the intellect by playfully morphing from one genre to another.
In a tight 90 minutes Nancy Harris’ new play Two Ladies moves from a sharp, occasionally funny observation of this wifely condition into a meditation on politics both gender and global:
Zoë Wanamaker and Zrinka Cvitešić will play Hélène and Sophia respectively in Two Ladies, a new play by Nancy Harris to be directed by Nicholas Hytner for the London Theatre Company at the Bridge Theatre.
Ian Rickson’s excellent production at the Harold Pinter Theatre demonstrates, without a shadow of a doubt, why The Birthday Party deserves its classic status.

But this starry revival of The Birthday Party which has just opened at – where else? – the Harold Pinter Theatre – is immensely enjoyable – even if you occasionally lose the plot.
Ian Rickson’s 60th-anniversary revival of Harold Pinter’s best-known play has opened at the West End theatre named after the late playwright. The Birthday Party stars Toby Jones, Zoë Wanamaker, Stephen Mangan and Pearl Mackie. Here’s what critics thought.
With its episode of a game of blind man’s bluff being both very funny and rather horrible, this is a Birthday Party for a generation brought up on The League of Gentlemen.
Pearl Mackie will join the cast of a new production of Harold Pinter’s The Birthday Party, in her first role since playing ‘Bill Potts’, the Doctor’s companion, in the latest series of the BBC’s Doctor Who.
A new production of Harold Pinter’s The Birthday Party will run at the West End’s Harold Pinter Theatre, 60 years since the play’s debut, from 9 January to 14 April 2018 with an opening night on 18 January 2018.
What first struck me about this book, which has been so thoughtfully compiled by Ian Closier-Hawkins, is just how many individuals he has obtained quotes from, whose names are familiar to me, but who I had not associated with this particular Drama School.
This week, the London theatre bloggers discuss Jamie Lloyd’s West End production of Doctor Faustus starring Game of Thrones’ hunk Kit Harington, Nick Payne’s new play Elegy starring Zoe Wanamaker at the Donmar Warehouse, and Iphigenia Quartet at the Gate Theatre.
Hot recommendations for summer theatregoing: Doctor Faustus, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Toxic Avenger, The Threepenny Opera…
I’ve met up with two friend couples since seeing Nick Payne’s new play Elegy at the Donmar Warehouse on Saturday afternoon – well, seeing it via the loop in the theatre bar as a coughing fit drove me out of the auditorium five minutes into the performance – and I’ve posed the play’s central question […]
This new play by Nick Payne stars Zoe Wanamaker,Nina Sosanya and Barbara Flynn and explores a world in which the brain is no longer a mystery to us and what the consequences of understanding it are. But what are critics saying about the new production at the Donmar Warehouse? The Guardian:**** Michael Billington wrote that: […]
