London Play
Anna Ziegler's provocative play, Actually, transfers to the West End's Trafalgar Studios this summer!
Amber and Tom hook up at party at their elite American university, and spend the night together. They agree on the drinking, they agree on the attraction, but what actually happened between them? With wit and urgency, Actually investigates the highly charged topic of sexual consent, the complex intersection of race and gender politics, our crippling desire to fit in, and the three sides to every story.

    A superb play about a very challenging subject. Both actors are excellent, sympathetic and funny at times. Who would you believe? We are all capable of giving mixed messages to others. Young lives are often ruined by such experiences.

    Excellent play in an intimate setting and a great price for the level of acting by the two performers. Would recommend!

  • Review Avatar Aug 12, 2019

    The minimal and abstract stage design proved an excellent and neutral setting for the powerful story and engaging acting.

    One minute you are getting sad and the other minute you are laughing. Sensitive topic given from different perspectives and you actually can’t really support only one.

    I thought it was very well done the acting was quality i felt a little ambivalent about what had actually (?) transpired, but perhaps i was meant to

  • Review Avatar Aug 23, 2019

    Really didn’t like it sadly as I did have high hopes. The audience directed monologues became boring to listen to and I noticed at least 6 members of the audience asleep. The female lead spoke too quickly for everything she said to be heard clearly and I didn’t believe in her character at all. The subject idea was clever but I feel it would have benefited from being cut to an hour. I’m an avid theatre goer but sadly wouldn’t recommend this particular production.

    Really enjoyed this play, both actors gave such a heart felt performance on such a difficult theme. I especially enjoyed the intimacy of the performance venue as it perfectly suited both the theme and the actors. A very enjoyable evening.

    Well crafted production and excellent performance of exceptional piece of modern writing.

  • Review Avatar Aug 25, 2019

    Beautifully written play - realistic scenario, delivered with poise, humour and balance. Both actors were thoroughly convincing and compelling. I thought it was truly excellent, and have already recommended it to others.

  • Review Avatar Aug 25, 2019

    A very well written play acted with passion that explores many of the multi faceted social and societal aspects of human interactions especially how communications are skewed by inter and intra expectations of race, gender, religion, structural (ie university policies and procedures) and social and sexual intercourse. Who understands what and why and the consequences there of.

    Interesting real-world scenario of Anglo Saxon alcohol fuelled student relationships, with realistic nuances.
