My friend and fellow Archers writer Tim Stimpson has a play on this Friday and Saturday, at the Old Joint Stock Theatre in Birmingham.
I saw One, Nineteen when it was premiered in London. It’s fast moving, funny and thought-provoking. It got great reviews, including four stars in Time Out.
Since then it’s been performed in Suffolk and Salford, and finally comes to Tim’s home city of Birmingham.
And given the news from the other side of the world, the subject matter is, to say the least, prescient. To quote from the press release:
“…Freak storms bring devastating floods to the English coast, but before the rescue effort arrives, the media are already in town spinning their story.
A play about the power of the news, the strength of the government, the question of climate change, and of course, and the search for Sam, Jack and little Chloe…”
See you there, I hope.
