If there was one play/production you could revive to watch when theatres reopen (hopefully) in May, what would you choose?
Would you go for something tragic or uplifting? Maybe a comedy because a laugh would be good?
This week my inbox has been busy with announcements about the first swathe of productions opening, and it got me thinking about what I want that first post lockdown theatre experience to be.
And given how tough it's been, combined with what will undoubtedly feel like quite joyful new freedom, I don't want to see something too depressing or tragic.
Not off the bat anyway.
I'd like to revisit something that had me walking out of the theatre with a spring in my step.
Something like Out There On Fried Meat Ridge Rd, which I saw at the White Bear Theatre and Trafalgar Studios on its transfer.
Or The Dirty Great Love Story from the Arts Theatre, which was a guffaw-inducing modern love story.
Alternatively, I'd like to watch something that is just downright silly, like Bears in Space which was at the Soho Theatre and starred none other than King Joffrey actor Jack Gleeson.
Or Hand To God (more puppets) which I saw at the Vaudeville Theatre and starred Harry Melling, Janie Dee, Jemima Rooper and Neil Pearson. I described it as like Satan had taken over Sesame Street.
Watch the video to see which one I ultimately chose.
What do you have a hankering to see post lockdown?
