In line with the season of goodness showing at Sadlers Wells in London, I ventured across town to meet up with a friend this evening.
Matthew Bourne’s “Play without Words”. A play that draws you in from the first moment, the 60s music compelling and vibrant and for the most part you feel as if you’ve stepped into the swinging 60s…. just wishing we had figures to wear the amazing outfits too!
My friend and I both said afterward that we weren’t sure how we would describe the storyline to others… but here I go, I’m going to try! With the help of a review – “Play Without Words is full of tensions — sexual, social, class — but they’re balanced out with comedy, visual flair, a slinky jazz score and a readable narrative that make this one of Bourne’s strongest works.”
The play is running until 5th August. Definitely worth going along to however not for those a little sensitive in nature. Book here

The Telegraph’s review – “Play Without Words at Sadler’s wells remains a whirl of sex, style and cigarette smoke by which it is impossible not to be seduced.”
