May Hope live on; The West End Beckons…

© Michelle GeorgeAs we approach the last few days of ‘Hope’s’ run at the Liverpool Royal court Theater I feel somewhat of a sadness having to say goodbye to this wonderful production. I can honestly put my hand on my heart and tell you that I have thoroughly enjoyed every single performance I have seen of this play. The script is both, funny and intriguing and the actors couldn’t have been more perfectly cast and I am not alone in my opinion. Whilst at “Hope’s press night I couldn’t help but have a look around to see peoples reactions and what I saw was rows of people intently leaning forward, mesmerised by every act. At the bar during the interval I heard non stop praise of the performances and analytical discussions on where the plot might lead….  The official critic reviews have since confirmed this, highly praising both the script, directing and acting with 4 or 5 stars across board:
