I’d take a chance on booking for this new piece, created by Chris Bush, Rebecca Frecknall and the company which says very emphatically that it is not a Corona play but rather one about isolation and connection and holding a candle to light the way through the darkness.
Recorded live at the Almeida Theatre on 15 December, experience Nine Lessons and Carols: stories for a long winter from the comfort of your own home. "In the dark times Will there also be singing? Yes, there will also be singing. About the dark times.” (Bertolt Brecht) This is not a Corona play. This is a play about connection and isolation, about lighting a candle to see us through the longest night, about what we hold on to when we cannot hold each other. Almeida Associate Director Rebecca Frecknall (Summer and Smoke, The Duchess of Malfi), playwright Chris Bush (Standing at the Sky’s Edge, Pericles) and a company of six performers devise a new production reflecting on a year of separation and the power of contact.
