BWW Review: ALYS, ALWAYS, Bridge Theatre Photo BWW Review: ALYS, ALWAYS, Bridge Theatre
by Marianka Swain - Mar 7, 2019

Harriet Lane's memorably unsettling 2012 novel, about an overlooked sub-editor who infiltrates the literary elite, has been adapted for stage by Lucinda Coxon. Its combination of psychological thriller and industry satire is decently translated, but a conservative production from Bridge boss Nicholas Hytner (who, astonishingly, is here directing his first ever play by a female writer) makes a middling case for the virtues of a theatrical version.
