South Camden Theatre Company Presents THE BREATH OF LIFESouth Camden Theatre Company Presents THE BREATH OF LIFE
by BWW News Desk - Aug 13, 2019

Life being what it is, one dreams of revenge. Gauguin's epigram serves as the motto for this moral tale of two women, both at a certain age, whose lives are interwoven in ways neither of them yet understands. Madeline Palmer is a retired curator, living alone on Britains Isle of Wight. One day Frances Beale comes to her door, a woman she has met only once, who is now enjoying sudden success, late in life, as a popular novelist.

Of the central theme of the play, playwright David Hare wrote 'You can no longer call it middle age, and you certainly can't call it old age. It's something in between...

by Kerrie Nicholson - Jul 31, 2019

In his introduction to the play in the programme, David Hare remarks that: a?oeit's not just that Vanya soaks up a bewildering variety of interpretation... it's also, that, in the theatre, it's often hard to discern exactly what it's about.a?? This elusiveness characterises this specially commissioned production at Theatre Royal Bath very well: it's sumptuously staged with some brilliant performances, yet the changes of tone don't quite blend as well as they may.

David Hare's updating of Ibsen's Peer Gynt has plenty to say about the world in 2019 - perhaps a little too much - but James McArdle's central performance and the sheer chutzpah of the concept and direction pulls it through. (more...)
