Reasons for trip

This exciting stage show is on at the playhouse Theatre between Charing Cross and Embankment underground stations so easy to find. I was inspired to book a ticket after seeing an excerpt on Facebook showing the young men dancing at the wedding feast balancing wine bottles on their heads! And I wasn’t disappointed.

The seat in Dress Circle was 6 rows back so not a bad position with full view of the stage though not the cheapest at £45. I love to see how set designers create a space that reflects the atmosphere of the play and accommodates scene changes. This was a great scene, crowded rooftops and the over-riding feeling of “grey” poverty, the cold sadness of leaving their homes, yet a lively bustling scene of the marriage celebrations.
Powerful voices and superb acting from every member of the cast with exciting dance routines. It was fascinating to see how the two groups of young men danced according to their different traditions.

It is a moving, sometimes funny look at family and love, tradition and beliefs, and the impact of forced expulsion from their homes. Clearly, it still resonates with the world today.
