“Still surprises after many years.”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

I've been a fan of the Donmar from the days before Sam Mendes was in charge and it's consistently produces intelligent, well acted and thought provoking pieces.
Privacy, the play showing at the moment is a great example of how it can surprise and inform in an entertaining way. See it if you can!

“Not what I expected, but that's a good thing”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

As a Friend of the Donmar, I try to see all the productions. Jose Rourke seems keen to get new plays on here and I knew nothing about this one. I was very surprised by the plays use of technology and the interaction with the audience. It is a very clever piece that could do with a nationwide tour. It is hilarious in places and there are a few surprises that it would be churlish to tell here as we were sworn to secrecy at the end. If you can get a ticket (good luck with that) go and see it. I hope this gets the wider audience it deserves.

“Run, Don't Walk, To Go See Privacy at the Donmar”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Saw the new production, Privacy, on its opening night (10 April 2014). Fantastic play, thought-provoking, well produced, great set, great performances. Note: part of it is a bit trite (and the young woman sitting next to me shouldn't have mentioned that she liked her own performance in Roots last fall ;-); ). But, as always, the Donmar presents provocative theatre. And if you can't make this performance, check them out any time you are London, I do and I am never disappointed.

PS My opinion that Josie Rourke is the most interesting theatrical director in the English-speaking world is confirmed by this production.

“Small, intimate venue.”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Like so many others I went to see Donmar production of Coriolanus in February. Having never been to the Donmar before, I was pleasantly surprised at how intimate the setting was. While I was lucky enough to have a seat in the stalls, no matter where you sat you still had an excellent view of the stage. It was nice not to need glasses in order to see the actors.
