Watch out for Benefactors, a new performance of the architectonic play by Michael Frayn and starring Neil Pearson of Drop the Dead Donkey and Between the Lines fame, which opened on 25 June in London.
The play, from the celebrated author of Noises Off, was written in 1984 and won an Olivier award for Best New Play. Apparently, it 'cleverly traces the intersecting paths of two neighbouring couples, one well off and the other down on their luck. Spanning the course of 15 years, Benefactors investigates the interplay between politics and architecture and the dance of those who help and those who are helped.' Phew!
