White Bear Theatre Presents MUSWELL HILL by Torben Betts , August 12-31
by BWW News Desk - Jul 27, 2014

January 2010 - an earthquake in Haiti leaves a hundred thousand people dead and almost two million homeless. Meanwhile in a leafy north London suburb, six individuals sit down to avocado and prawns - 'so reassuringly 1970s' - followed by a monkfish stew.

A social event in which much is said but little communicated rapidly disintegrates as the wine flows and some hard truths are told. (more...)
