I never do this so imagine how strongly I must feel.
Last night I saw The Secret Life of Joseph Finch, written and directed by Serge Bennathan and performed by Jonathon Young. It’s a stunning piece of theatre. The writing is vivid and the staging and performance uncommonly detailed and virtuosic. Jonathon’s physical and textually dexterity is remarkable. Though it is the story of a holocaust survivor the play’s content and imagery has a boisterous sense of humour and breathtaking beauty; it’s about home, heredity, fathers and sons; it’s riveting. I left feeling genuinely inspired. A great gift.
Below are the show times. Go see it.
