There couldn't have been a bad seat in the house as the set design by Janie E Howland was expertly done and looked incredible. This included an added side section which made up the Major's office, and the upstairs bedrooms.
As always, the venue were fantastic. The Southwark Playhouse Elephant are very accomodating, and have gender neutral facilities and various accessible provisions.
In future it would be great to see this show feature some embedded accessiblity, such as captioning or audio description, so that the history is open to more people. As this play displays a hidden side to such an important conversation, I would love for this to be made more accessible so more people can enage.
Regarding the perspective of the actors on stage, there was not a squeeky wheel on this train of collaborators. When speaking with the director after the show, he mentioned that he doesn't feel there are any small parts in the play, and I'm inclined to agree. Even with all eleven characters on stage at times, each one had a voice and worked in tandem with the rest of the cast.
