Festival Players brings you a Sondheim classic, with the same creative team that brought you our hugely successful 2018 production of ‘Company’ – Cat Nicol directing and Ana Sanderson as MD.
Sondheim’s mastery of emotional observation is again to the fore in this tale of three friends and how their relationship evolves. Or, one could say, un-evolves – as the time-line is reversed!
We start in 1976 and the scenes move back in time to end in 1957, in an attempt to answer the question – “how did we get to there from here?” The messy, complex lives of songwriter-turned-Hollywood-producer Frank, lyricist Charley and theatre critic Mary are revealed though some incredible music and lyrics of poignancy, sharpness, truth, and warm intelligence.
Everything you’d expect from Sondheim & Furth’s ever-so-slightly autobiographical gem.
7.45pm start, plus a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm – check the website for details.
