An Arthur Miller Gem - Incident at Vichy (Theatre Review)

THE Finborough Theatre in London’s Chelsea is in a rich vein of form judging by its latest production Incident at Vichy.

Incident at Vichy

This Arthur Miller play hasn’t had a professional production here in over fifty years and I’ve been waiting most of those years to see it myself, but it was worth the wait for Phil Willmotts’s excellent, timely production at the indispensable Finborough Theatre. 255 more words
