Rockets And Blue Lights, directed by MIRANDA CROMWELL with Fight Direction by YARIT DOR and featuring PAUL BRADLEY, opened at the National Theatre last night to excellent reviews! Written by Winsome Pinnock, this prescient and pertinent play revolves around the painting ‘The Slave Ship’ by Turner (played by PAUL) and who has the right to tell the stories of the past.
See below a selection of the reviews the play has received so far:
‘Miranda Cromwell’s production instils a ghostliness, with figures drifting through each other’s stories.’ – THE STAGE
‘Miranda Cromwell’s production – which was shut down after its third performance at Manchester’s Royal Exchange in March 2020 – feels urgent and important. Deeply sad and shaming, it’s also startlingly funny in parts.’ – THE EVENING STANDARD
‘…a production by Miranda Cromwell that embodies the link between past and present, letting scenes flow into each other, just as the past does the present, and allowing the actors to move with fluid skill between many parts.’ – WhatsOnStage
Rockets and Blue Lights runs until 9th October 2021. Book your tickets here!
