ST JAMES THEATRE
(and "The Studio")
Ends 9th July 2016.
Miles and Jack are having midlife crisis. On a Californian vineyard tour
they meet Maya and Terra, who are equally complicated.
A Rex Pickett play, directed by David Grindley.
"The Studio" schedule:
See www.stjamestheatre.co.uk for details of productions.
Apparently this is a stage version of the author's 2004 film. Pretty much all
professional reviewers seem to agree that the cast, notably Daniel Weyman
(Miles) the writer whose journey this is, and Simon Harrison (Jack) as the dim
best friend. The ladies, Ellie Piercy (Maya) and Beth Cordingly (Terra) also
come out of it well - one hard but caring, the other simply funny.
opinions polarise is the script itself. Some find it a perfect revision -
working as fluidly on stage as screen, travelling along on its own terms and
aching to have the film re-discovered. Others find the "back story" exposition
by phone call and recorded message completely "amateur" and lending the whole
effort a clunkiness that is unforgivable, given the original source.
For those seeking an undemanding evening, seems to be the overall opinion.
