Photo Coverage: Close Quarter Productions Presents The Heart Of Things by Giles Cole - Jermyn StreetPhoto Coverage: Close Quarter Productions Presents The Heart Of Things by Giles Cole - Jermyn Street
by BWW News Desk - Mar 4, 2015

The Heart of Things by Giles Cole runs at Jermyn Street Theatre from 10 March to 4 April. Nick Waring (The Three Musketeers, Hay Fever, The Trials of Oscar Wilde , Star Quality) plays the lead role of disillusioned English teacher, Peter Calder, and says it was the writing that drew him to the play. 'The Heart of Things has many beautiful and delicate shades of grey', he says and then, with a laugh, adds, 'but not 50. It's definitely got more than 50. At my stage of life, I understand it more than I care to admit. The play explores how to be happy through the disappointment of middle age'. (more...)

BWW Review: THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST and the Importance of Purposeful TrivialityBWW Review: THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST and the Importance of Purposeful Triviality
by Maggie Yates - Feb 20, 2015

Wilde's play about the triviality of Victorian culture has been produced everywhere, by everyone. It's a staple of the English-speaking theatrical repertory in the way that “Don't Stop Believing” is a staple of the karaoke repertory. Mercifully, 'Earnest' has the potential to be a great play—the main characters all share Wilde's gift for witticism; the play is purposeful in its absurdity; and it's intelligently written.

Toss together James Joyce, Vladimir Lenin, and Dadaist poet Tristan Tzara in Zurich in 1917 (where they really were), throw in limericks and lyrics and The Importance of Being Earnest, then shred the whole melange through the mixed-up mind of an aging British civil servant (who has a big grudge against Joyce concerning a pair of trousers), and you've entered the Wilde-ly witty world of Travesties.
