Hymn @ The Almeida...
The show was great. Stunning performance from the two leads. And genius usage of Rebel MC and Double Trouble's Street Tuff
Two men meet at a funeral.
Gil knew the deceased. Benny did not.
Before long their families are close.
Soon they’ll be singing the same tune.
Benny (Danny Sapani) is a loner anchored by his wife and children. Gil (Adrian Lester) longs to fulfil his potential. They form a deep bond but as cracks appear in their fragile lives, they start to realise that true courage comes in different forms.
Following a sold-out run of live streamed shows in February (which we also saw), Hymn's return is another triumph for the Almeida.
