With some 4 stars already rolling in, go and see this story of classes. I saw this one already and the performances by Flora Dawson and Shane Noone elevated the play. The topics covered were great like affording NHS medical bills and the dynamic of relations between Alex Reynolds and Jack Gogarty’s characters, could of done with exploring more to really get to the core of the relationship. On a whole it was a very touching story with layered themes and from a talented writer. A defo see for the Fringe circuit !

Hedda Gabler is on at the National which is worth a see if you can grab a ticket. My new years resolution is to go to more of the theatres I don’t like The Bush and The Arcola which always seem to programme a diverse selection of plays.
