South London’s best kept theatrical secret came up with six fantastic slices of drama last week, including a 15 minute play by Claire Booker.
The bijou, 50-seater theatre offered a generous platform for six new plays – covering such diverse topics as love, therapy, racism, sex, philosophy and even a post-modern take on Cinderella.
Claire’s play (Blue Line Day) follows a married couple’s struggle with their inner demons. The roles were played with great finesse by Jerry Marwood and Caroline Short – under the able direction of Joanna Greaves.
” It’s always amazing to see how actors and directors find new and often surprising angles to my work. But that’s the collaborative joy of theatre!”
