4.0 out of 5 stars Richard Bean on his home turf, 2 Dec. 2010
Karla (London, United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Pub Quiz is Life (Oberon Modern Plays) (Paperback)
I'd like to see this play performed more, its has merit but will age because of the questions in the pub quiz. But you could update it in future productions. The gritty realism of this returning soldier to his hometown in Hull, to a life centred around the pub, where his dad - an ex miner- can't get medication from the NHS, and locals swing between drug dealing and prostitution. Its not a jolly world except in the pub, and the vibrancy of the competition between the pub teams and the engagment with culture - their culture and learning - it shows what could be working in this community but ISNT. Bean has great ear for dialogue and strong cast of characters.
