BWW Review: LAND WITHOUT DREAMS, Gate Theatre Photo BWW Review: LAND WITHOUT DREAMS, Gate Theatre
by Cindy Marcolina - Nov 20, 2019

Sometimes theatre can go very wrong for a lot of reasons. The audience are required to take a leap of faith, suspend their belief, and put their trust in the performers on stage. Some shows require a lot from the people who watch them, some don't. Land Without Dreams demands a level of openness that it's never able to fulfill. The piece works well on paper. On stage, not so much. Besides making a bunch of promises that aren't kept, the piece is, regrettably, inconclusive and inconsequential.

Polly Stenham's updating of Strindberg's Miss Julie moves the action to contemporary London, and finds both contempt and sympathy for this new version of the idle rich. But, shorn of its 19th-century context, the play struggles to make the class transgression feel dangerous, nor does this 85-minute piece dwell long enough on subjects like racism or sexism.
