THE NEXT STAGE
If you are looking for a night out this autumn, try the new play by Oren Safdie, son of superstar Moshe, opening at London's New End Theatre on 13 November. Private Jokes, Public Places tackles the thorny issue of student crit. A student has her thesis presentation torn apart by two starchitects of different views, while supported by her tutor, with whom, of course, she is sleeping. Safdie's knowledge comes both from his upbringing and the fact that he studied architecture. Reviews from New York, where the play was shown off-Broadway, were very positive, with plaudits from the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, among others.
This should be a hot ticket.
