BWW Review: AFTER THE END, Theatre Royal Stratford East Photo BWW Review: AFTER THE END, Theatre Royal Stratford East
by Cindy Marcolina - Mar 3, 2022

The theatre gods work in mysterious ways. Right when Putin is wreaking havoc in Ukraine, threatening to start a nuclear world war, a show set in a fallout shelter opens at Theatre Royal Stratford East. Dennis Kelly’s After The End is a play about power and displays scenes of spine-chilling violence - which is the main reason why the writer hasn’t let many people touch it since it debuted in Edinburgh in 2005. With Lyndsey Turner at the helm, the project is a jarring, visceral tale of manipulation, control, and toxic masculinity.

Three distinct doorways separate three different time periods. Between them stands three Nora's, played superbly by Natalie Klamar, Amaka Okafor, and Anna Russell-Martin. The eras they occupy are a post-war 1948, a vibing 1968 and a more contemporary 2018. The women are subject to political, personal and societal suffocation.
