The photo shows a small detail from the wonderful Hackney Peace Carnival Mural, just round the corner from the Arcola Theatre – where we will perform THE MISTAKE from April 18-22, at 7pm each evening, with a matinee on the 22nd at 3pm.
‘THE MISTAKE covers very difficult subject matter in a way that really engages the imagination and emotions and all with such intelligence’ (Audience feedback)
‘A powerful examination of humanity in the wake of Hiroshima ★★★★’ (The List)
‘The play is fast paced and yet detailed, lyrical when it needs to be, complex at other times. It jumps place, time and characters seamlessly and is truly, all round, an exceptionally high-quality piece of writing. All of that could be overlooked though if not in the hands of two expert actors. Luckily Mears himself, alongside Emiko Ishii prove just that – experts at their craft. Ishii is haunting as she recalls the diary entries left by Nomura Shigeko that give us deeply personal insight into the Hiroshima atrocities.’ (review from Theatre Travels. Org at the Edinburgh Fringe).
