The Animals and Children Took to the Streets
Just got back from seeing the excellent 19-27 production of 'The animals and children took to the streets'
Set in a desolate tenement building, the play follows the bitter struggles of a handful of characters as they cross paths in a world of juvenile delinquency, prostitution and shattered dreams. The downtrodden caretaker counting his pennies for a one-way ticket out of his bleak world provides many of the laughs, and as always the combination of animation and performance is amazing. Paul Barritt and Suzanne Andrade are both very talented.
You can catch the show til the 12th november at the Bristol old Vic, then til January at the National theatre London.
