CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
Three former school friends unravel disturbing memories while holidaying at a French farmhouse. 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 forward, 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.Performers Teresa Banham, Sara Crowe, Eve Matheson.

The Times (11Jan01): This is a play about the subjectivity of perception, the selectivity of memory, the difficulty of agreeing on just about anything. Alan Clark's excellent cast certainly make the most of it. For the 90 minutes that My Best Friend lasts, they are absorbing company.
