TALKING TO TERRORISTS BY ROBIN SOANS @ KING STREET THEATRE

 

British playwright Robin Soan’s play was first performed on 21st April 2005 at the Theatre Royal in Suffolk, England.

Director Marcus Weber told the audience before we went in last night that we were ‘privileged to see this play after its acclaimed premier season in France and now, finally on an Australian stage’. He also said it was ‘a pity that Australian Playwrights often have to work overseas’ for recognition.

I thought at the time that ‘privileged’ was quite a claim – but we were. This was easily the best play I’ve seen this year.
