MY BEST FRIEND
by Tamsin Oglesby
directed by Sophie Lifschutz

****
"Poignant and funny childhood recollections"
- Stephan Ernst, Remote Goat

with
Emma Carver
Elizabeth Jackson
Gloria Sanders

downstageleft brings you another chance to see this fantastic production directed by Sophie Lifschutz




Bee and Em have been best friends for thirty years: they're on holiday in rural France, away from the demands of work and family. But just as they're setting the clocks back, in steps Chris, a blast from their school days past. As the evening wears on, the three women joke and fight with one another just like the old times. But time plays tricks with memory and some wounds are just too deep to heal. This provocative and hilarious play takes a scalpel to childhood friendships and asks whether we ever get over them.

Praise for the author:
'The human observation is sharp, the writing deft' - Benedict Nightingale, The Times

"sparky writing ... confirms that [Oglesby] is a writer capable of combining sharp wit with deep feeling ... Oglesby has you laughing at one moment and wincing with rueful recognition the next ... compelling" - Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph
