It's not been a long time since Clare Barron took both New York and London by storm with her 2018 play Dance Nation, whose portrayal of a group of teenage competitive dancers had gloriously ruptured into feminist fireworks. Her next work to appear on a London stage is not a new play, but an earlier piece titled Dirty Crusty. Directed by Jay Miller, this hyped-up production at The Yard thrusts itself upon the audience with a near-reckless openness, but consistently proves devoid of anything that could transform its daring, even subversive, spirit into meaningful substance.

Caroline, Or Change tells the story of a maid in Louisiana in 1963. Racial and class tensions form the backdrop, but the show also contains a great deal of joy, humour and sass thanks to a frankly glorious cast led by the inimitable Sharon D. Clarke.
