The next stage

  • Comment

If you are looking for an evening out in the autumn, consider a new play opening at London's New End Theatre on 13 November. 'Private Jokes, Public Places', which will be having its European premiere, was written by Oren Safdie, son of superstar Moshe, and tackles the thorny issue of the student crit. A Korean-American student has her thesis presentation torn apart by two visiting starchitects of very different views, while supported by her tutor, with whom of course she is sleeping. Oren Safdie's knowledge comes not only from his upbringing but also from the fact that he studied architecture at Columbia. 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.
