Not available. Professional reviewers agree that the translation used isn't
up to much, and there isn't a plot to speak of... yet, it's all quite watchable,
and the performances are good. Uzo Aduba is noted for her intensity, an energy
which one reviewer felt revealed more about the play than ever. Zawe Ashton is
noted for her ability to switch from escapist to anxious, while Laura Carmichael
makes a good case for plotting as their employer.
Adding the element of racial tension also helps, and if the set is considered
"twee" by some, just uninvolving by others, it doesn't matter. Yes, it is a
bunch of scenarios as much as a play at times, but it seems to work, and
director Lloyd should be applauded for a chance to see this once more in the
West End, is the verdict.
