Review – The City and The Town

This new work from Anders Lustgarten is powerfully written, guaranteed to have you gripped throughout.

The story starts with two brothers brought together by the funeral of their dad, their stories very different  Ben left his troubled home town and “made good” whilst the other, Magnus, stuck around, his life taking a very different direction.

The story develops, a tale of class, politics and complex family relationships, leading to a gripping and surprising conclusion.

Perfectly acted, thoughtfully directed and expertly written this is highly recommended .

At the Stephen Joseph Theatre until Friday.
