‘Don’t Send Flowers’ had its London run (finally) at The White Bear theatre from 30th August- 4th September with Forest Theatre Company
We have a couple of lovely reviews starting with this from The Spectator in which Lloyd Evans said:
The characters are original, well drawn and easy to like. The dialogue and the acting are carried off with relaxed proficiency. And the unfolding story is a delight to watch.
‘Theatre Things’ had so many lovely things to say it’s hard to pick one. Sometimes you read a comment on your work and think ‘this person gets it’ and that was wonderful to read in this review- it’s not about praise it’s about understanding what we were trying to achieve.
But I do particularly like this comment, which feels like what I was trying to say:
‘here is no right or wrong way to look at it. Laughing, crying, raging, eating cake, getting drunk, having sex, putting your dead loved one’s ashes in a bag for life… they’re all acceptable responses, especially if they help.’
