Between Us – at the Arcola Theatre

‘I’m okay, you’re okay, they’re okay, we’re all okay and in this together.’

“What do stand-up, being a proud father, therapy and adoption have in common? They’re all different ways of feeling good about yourself. But what happens if this is not enough?

Between Us is a darkly comic glimpse into the way we live now that asks how we have allowed it to come to this…” – on the Arcola Theatre website

“John Burgess’s production balances poignancy with humour, its action concentrated on the individual performer. Between Us left me wanting more but not dissatisfied: it compacts so much in its brief timespan and is perfectly cast.” – British Theatre Guide

“It’s only through black comedy that Daniels is able to be so brutally honest about her themes, which hang together tightly in an amusingly and touchingly human drama that's thought-provoking and wonderfully acted.” ★★★★ – The Gizzle

“It introduces and interrogates its themes deeply despite the compact running time (something a great number of dramatists would do well to take note of) and achieves a great balance of comedy and pathos in taking apart modern neuroses and asking what it is that would really make us feel better.” – There Ought To Be Clowns

“A provocative mix of sex, standup and social malaise” – Guardian

“A thought-provoking and insightful play” – Time Out

As seats are unallocated, I will not be making a group booking for this play. Please book your own ticket direct with the theatre.

Please contribute £1 on arrival (to help defray the approx. £100 per annum that Meetup charges to run a group) – thanks in advance.

In the days immediately prior, I’ll circulate details of arrangements to meet before the performance. We will have drinks in the theatre cafe-bar after the play – if you would like to stay on afterward for a conversation about the play, please let me know, as I’ll need to book a table.

    Overall, an enjoyable and thought-provoking play. Although it did lack depth, which was understandable due to the short time duration. Thank you Jane ! Really appreciate you and your choice of plays !
