Sturdy Beggars at the Network Theatre
The Network Theatre certainly vies for the title of London’s most elusive venue, but it might well be worth seeking out the entrance to this theatre that lurks underneath Waterloo train station for the next instalment in Sturdy Beggars’ Brain Drain season. Their last production, “Ivona, Princess of Burgundia” was a spectacular success, and if “The Wolf” has even half as much attitude about it, it would be a shame to miss it.
I can’t tell you much about the playwright or the play, but here’s what it says on the Sturdy Beggars’ website:-
Molnar is one if Hungary’s most beloved writers, whose plays & novels have found success around the globe. His works have inspired a host of other writers, with adaptations of his plays including Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musical play Carousel, P. G. Wodehouse’s The Play’s the Thing and Tom Stoppard’s Rough Crossing. Although published in four languages simultaneously in 1912 and last performed professionally in the UK in the early 1970s, the play’s exploration of the nature of success and obsession with money still finds resonance in society today.
