The last review of the year and yet we have so many more shows around the corner. The Sydney Festival is always a chance to see a wide variety of shows, with an ever-increasing number of circus/cabaret shows.
This year was especially busy, taking in 28 shows in London and Dublin. It’s been interesting to see some of those shows here and make comparisons. One of those is Brian Friel’s Faith Healer, which I saw at the Donmar Warehouse theatre in London and raved about as being one of the best productions I had seen. It starred Stephen Dillane, Gina McKee and Ron Cook, who all delivered superb performances on a set that was a masterful use of the Donmar’s small space.
