One Night in November at The Electric Theatre 15 – 18 November 2017

  ‘At the end of this moving play, as the cast, clutching candles, emerged from the shadows to take their bows, there was no immediate burst of applause.

Sardines Magazine

Nigel Dams. Reviewer ONE NIGHT IN NOVEMBER. In the scale of Things Difficult To Stage, I would have thought a living-room getting smashed up by the Luftwaffe would be right up there, but Guildburys did it to superb effect. That was the emotional, dramatic and visual climax to a very thought-provoking show at the Electric Read More
