Toast at Park Theatre opens to great reviews


Matthew Kelly in Richard Bean's 'Toast'

Charles Spencer’s final theatre review in the Telegraph, calls Toast at the Park Theatre “constantly compelling”  and Matthew Kelly’s performance “mesmerising” in this “vivid and humorous play”.

From the Park Theatre:

The brilliantly observed, moving and funny play from the writer of the international smash hit One Man, Two Guv’nors.

Another Sunday night shift. The smell of bread baking. The industrial thump, thump, thump of the machines that never stop. The ovens are cranked up to full blast, the factory is humming, and everyone wants to be somewhere else.

But this shift is going to be different. Because when a crisis hits the factory, the men have more to lose than just their wages…   

Richard Bean’s first major play is directed by Eleanor Rhode, whose credits include the multi-award nominated production of Thark at Park Theatre, and the Time Out Critics’ Choice productions of The Drawer Boy and Generous.

“Richard Bean is a master of dark comedy” The Times

“It was impossible to find fault with Eleanor Rhode’s joyous direction. There is no excuse not to go.”  ★★★★★ Islington Gazette on Thark
