The March on Russia

BY DAVID STOREY
7 September 2017 — 7 October 2017

★★★★★ "Alice Hamilton’s exemplary revival" Dominic Cavendish, Telegraph

★★★★ "There could be no better tribute to David Storey" Michael Billington, Guardian

★★★★ “make haste to celebrate this superlative remounting of the late David Storey’s piece, a crisply bittersweet look at a very long working-class marriage and the changing times it has gone through.” Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard

★★★★ “Ian Gelder and Sue Wallace captivate… Their banter is bang-on and brilliantly funny” Miriam Gillinson, Time Out

★★★★ "a reminder of just how good and pertinent a playwright Storey was." Sarah Crompton, WhatsOnStage 

★★★★ “Alice Hamilton’s well-judged revival… Storey, who died this year, had a natural ear for the rhythms of domestic bickering; Hamilton matches it with a knack for articulating emotion in the rituals of domestic life.” Kate Maltby, The Times

★★★★  “In Alice Hamilton’s finely calibrated production all the performances are lively.” Susannah Clapp, Observer 

★★★★ “Ian Gelder and Sue Wallace, beautifully unshowy… Alice Hamilton’s production precisely charts the things that need not be said over countless cups of tea. The play pokes over marital bickering, and stored hurt and affection, with economy and humour.” Maxie Szalwinska, The Sunday Times

★★★★ “The play is a slow burn but it emits a power that few contemporary dramas can match. This is its first major revival since the National Theatre premiere in 1989 and director Alice Hamilton does it proud. The five-strong cast offers a masterclass in authenticity.” Michael Arditti, Sunday Express

★★★★ “a funny, mournful elegy to the past and a moving portrayal of a marriage.” Tom Wicker, The Stage

★★★★ “the elegiac tone perfectly captures the disappearance of a proud, self-sufficient, working-class generation… Ian Gelder and Sue Wallace excel as Mr and Mrs Pasmore” Richard Maguire, Reviews Hub
