Back to 2017 or to Nexo Digital

(to be completed)

In original, with Italian subtitles.

A play different from what I expected, but I enjoyed the performances, especially his.

explains how it is being British through music-hall actor Archie Rice. We see his downfall despite he was never a good actor

best moments are when Archie performs, some scenes are a bit slow. Interesting because it shows the music-hall’s last years.

I found nice the prelude, with young writer John Osborne talking about John Osborne. A playwright I have to re-discover!

the set design was rich on the background, showing the stage inside a beautiful theatre and gorgeous curtains.

Few pieces of furniture of the house moved by the cast. The costumes were simple but in perfect ’50s style. Good cast.
