A visiting production brought to the Apollo by Close Quarter Productions and Theatre Reviva! in association with Holofcener Ltd: three linked short plays, Weatherman, Still Dancers and An Occasional Cup of Tea.
Time has a habit of taking its revenges… and having the last laugh.
Two men, two women. And a few closely guarded secrets.
Alfred and Joan, Charlie and Marianne are two former showbiz couples who have stuck together through thick and thin, but just how well do they really know each other? Relationships can be a delicate balance of hope, desire, memory, regret and much more besides. It’s never too late for change, though – or is it?
Close Quarter Productions and Theatre Reviva! in association with Holofcener Ltd, present three linked short plays, Weatherman, Still Dancers and An Occasional Cup of Tea, each approximately 30 minutes long, which can be seen in pairs or all together as one complete play, After All These Years. Featuring and directed by Graham Pountney, who has appeared on the Apollo stage as well as being well-known on stage and screen, the show can be described as comedy drama without a single mention of Covid, and that’s a promise.
Direct from the Brighton Fringe 2021
“Delightful vignettes of reminiscences and regrets, forgetfulness and the future” Richard Beck, Broadway Baby
“This three-act Chekhovian elegy for the dance of age is in a defining league of its own. A superb play, it should be, as one director present said, in the West End. And these actors would look even more in place. To say it’s some of the very finest acting I’ve ever seen at the Fringe doesn’t do it justice”
Simon Jenner, Fringe Review
