Went to see 'Harper Ragan' at the Cottesloe Theatre and realized just how powerful silent moments can be in theatre. You can feel the electricity in the air. A moving and original piece of work...
If you go, I don’t think you should come back.
On a startlingly bright Autumn night in 2006 Harper Regan walked away from her home and her husband and her daughter and she kept walking. She told nobody that she was going. She told nobody where she was going. She put everything she ever built at risk. For two lost days and nights, until it looked as though her entire life might unravel, she didn’t turn back.
From Uxbridge to Stockport to Manchester and back again, Simon Stephens’ new play navigates the UK, exploring family, love and delusion; and how to live in a godless universe.
‘Sharp shines in Simon Stephens' dark picture of England. I relished every second of Lesley Sharp's performance.'
