Riflemind, has posted early closing notices at the Trafalgar Studios for 25 Oct 2008. (It was originally booking to 3 Jan 2009).
Written by Andrew Upton and directed by Philip Seymour, it opened at Trafalgar Studios One 18 Sep 2008, following previews from 15 Sep 2008, to very poor notices from the popular press: THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Aggressively dull." THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "dreary dross." THE TIMES says, "Not interesting enough." THE INDEPENDENT says, "Mortifyingly bad."
The play features John Hannah and Paul Hilton alongside original Australian cast members Susan Prior, Steve Rodgers, Jeremy Sims .
Twenty years after their frontman, John, walked off stage for good, the iconic rock band Riflemind are set to get together again. For John , a reunion might be his second chance; for his wife Lynn , it could be the end of the world as she knows it ... As the band descends upon John's country manor, one weekend fast becomes the ultimate test of talent, friendship and loyalty.
