Theatre: Friend or Foe....
Thank you Mercury Theatre. This was one of the best plays I've seen in a long time. The cast were perfectly chosen, the two main boys holding our attention throughout and just three other actors creating 11 other characters. Myself and three friends all raved about the excellent use of the unchanging stage set, how we believed all the places we were taken to. We marvelled at the huge amount of dialogue, all word perfect with good timing and believable accents. And amazing choreography for the river drowning/rescue sequence.
A thrilling tale of extraordinary friendship from master storyteller Michael Morpurgo (author of War Horse and The Butterfly Lion).
