How Long is Never: Darfur – a response

“Which theatre, other than the Tricycle, would commission a series of short plays about Darfur? And where else in London would you find such an intelligent post-show discussion about the extent of the crisis and the international response to it? It is a potent reminder that theatre, among its myriad other functions, has a mission to inform”  The Guardian

Which theatre in London does most to expand consciousness? My vote goes to the Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn…one of the few dramatic masterstrokes I have encountered in new playwriting this year. Financial Times
