Hymn @ The Almeida...

Last Monday night Stuart and I went to see Hymn @ The Almeida Theatre in London's glitzy Islington.

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.
