My Zinc Bed

David Hare's new three character play has received good notices from the popular press....NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Hare's own production of an overlong text crackles with passion and vehemence. " He goes on to say that Steven Mackintosh and Julia Ormond are magnificent. THE DAILY MAIL says, "David Hare's brilliant, metaphorical new work - easily the best new play of the year so far." THE FINANCIAL TIMES says, "What an immense pleasure just to watch and listen to the three actors in David Hare's new play My Zinc Bed." THE GUARDIAN says David Hare's "writing is laced with a sharp, suggestive wit". THE INDEPENDENT says, "The initial set up is not very plausible; it is repetitive; and some of the lines bristle with thematic obviousness, ... But the passion of the writing is enormously impressive." ALEKS SIERZ for THE STAGE says, "Although it has a messy ending, this is a wonderfully humane play which mixes the issues of seventies state of the nation plays with the intensity of more recent drama in a highly charged evening." JANE EDWARDES for TIME OUT says, "Hare, once again, unnervingly dissects our times."
