THE TRUTH (play)
Ends 3rd September 2016.
Alice is married to Paul. Paul's best friend is Michel. Michel is having
an affair with Alice.
Christopher Hampton's translation of this Florian Zeller play transfers
to this theatre from a Spring 2016 run at the Menier Chocolate Factory
Not available. Gets the vote of the professional reviewers, though. In a time
when cross-channel relations are wavering, this French tale of two couples
scores highly for the quality of writing, translation, direction and acting.
Best of all, the ending isn't easily guessed, and the path to it is littered
with small revelations.
The acting team of Alexander Hanson (Michel), Frances O'Connor (Alice),
Robert Portal (Paul) and Tanya Franks are served well by script and Lindsay
Posner's spare production, apparently. If it's a little quick and more of a
morality lesson to the British (according to one reviewer) than mirror, no
matter. Apparently a well-crafted evening, deserving of its transfer and your
attention, seems to be the verdict.
