Strangers in Between, review: Well-deserved transfer

Strangers in Between, review: Well-deserved transfer | LGBT Movies, Theatre, FIlm & Music | Scoop.it
This three-hander by the award-winning dramatist Australian playwright, Tommy Murphy, arrives in the West End, having had a successful run at the King's Head Theatre in Islington. Catching up with it now, I'm glad to vouch that Adam Spreadbury-Maher's beautifully cast production well deserves this transfer. The piece is set in Sydney's King's Cross area (roughly equivalent to Soho) where the sixteen year old Shane, in flight from his rural hometown of Goulburn and lying about his age, has fetched up and secured himself a job in a bottlo (off-license).
