YELLOWFIN

by Marek Horn

Southwark Playhouse

13 October - 6 November 2021


"Ed Madden's traverse staging of Horn's interval-free text swims by beautifully... This world premiere run of the play is urgent, astute and persuasive." - The Times

"Madden's tidy production allows Horn's skilful wordplay to take centre stage... The climactic moments are superbly well constructed, leading to a delicious denouement. I guarantee you'll never look at a tin of tuna in quite the same way" - WhatsOnStage

"A rare glimpse of that vanishing species: the

play of ideas." - The Telegraph

"Sharp, tangy and truly hilarious... Much credit goes to director Ed Madden for showcasing and framing these performances with finesse, [finding] dynamism in exquisite pacing and in Pappenheim's sound world." - Exeunt

 

"Smart, funny, scary: an absolute bream of a play. An ace cast in a diamond production." - David Jays

Design by Anisha Fields

Lighting by Rajiv Pattani
Sound by Max Pappenheim

Cast: Nancy Crane, Nicholas Day, Joshua James, Beruce Khan

A TABLE TENNIS PLAY

by Sam Steiner

"In Ed Madden's beautifully judged, brilliantly acted production, a play that takes its time comes up like a bruise." - Fest
