Time Out says
Emma Rice reopens the Old Vic with her doubtless surreal, whimsical adaptation of a 1987 indie flick
The first ‘proper’ Old Vic show back in front of a live audience is the always magnificent Emma Rice’s interpretation of this classic 1987 indie film about two women who forge a friendship in an obscure, desolate diner on Route 66. Nandi Bhebhe, Le Gateau Chocolat, Bettrys Jones, Patrycja Kujawska, Nadine Lee, Sandra Marvin, Kandaka Moore, Renell Shaw, Gareth Snook and Ewan Wardrop star in this co-production between the Old Vic and Rice’s Wise Children, adapted and directed by Rice. The last week of the run will be In Camera performances, broadcast to an international home audience. Suitable for ages eight-plus.
