Before writing about the many plays I have seen since last writing I wish to recommend the two plays at the Belvoir Street Theatre which I will review for the next edition. Downstairs, there is a wonderful surprise from Lally Katz. She was commissioned to write a play about the global financial crisis and this is her one woman tale of what happened, Stories I Want to Tell You in Person. Upstairs, Forget Me Not is an extremely moving story about the effect on one family of the deportation of the central character from England as an orphan to Australia.
I have seen five productions, all of them excellent and all different. What a broad church theatre is and at its best it is life affirming, sometimes emotional and sometimes inspiring.
