Have you booked yet for THERE OR HERE at the Park Theatre? This UK premiere of Jennifer Maisel’s dramatic comedy is now running until 17 February 2018. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite review quotes – plus full production shots gallery – below. Time to get booking!
THERE OR HERE is the first offering of the 2018 season in PARK90, mounted by the same producers who scored a hit in 2014 with the UK premiere of another American play, David Henry Hwang’s Yellow Face, which was first seen at the Park Theatre before transferring to the National Theatre.
Set in 2006, when illness prevents American married couple Robyn and Ajay from having a child of their own, they return to India – the country of Ajay’s birth – to outsource their pregnancy to a local woman. As they embark on this journey of a lifetime, their increasing inability to be each other’s comfort drives them to seek solace from other outsourced strangers on the opposite end of their phones.
EastEnders star Rakhee Thakrar features in the THERE OR HERE cast, playing numerous characters, along with Lucy Fenton (as Robyn), Manish Gandhi, Ursula Mohan and Chris Nayak (Ajay). This production is directed by Vik Sivalingam and designed by Vicky Sweatman, with lighting by Robbie Butler and sound by Nicola Chang. It’s presented by Special Relationship Productions in association with Anita Creed Productions and Park Theatre.
THERE OR HERE runs at London’s Park Theatre until 17 February 2018, Tuesday to Saturday Performances at 7.45pm and Thursday and Saturday matinees at 3.15pm. Tickets are priced £18 (concessions £16.50). CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
