                               Amy's View

Itís 1979. Esme Allen is a well-known actress at just the moment when the West End is ceasing to offer actors a regular way of life. The visit of her young daughter, Amy, with a new boyfriend sets in train a series of events which only find their shape sixteen years later. Playwright David Hare's four-act family drama mixes love, death and the theatre in an exciting and original way. Previous productions have included Judi Dench and Felicity Kendal in the cast and have been performed at the National Theatre and on Broadway.
