White Open Spaces
This article is from 2006.
It’s not often you come out of a play in Edinburgh thankful for Trevor Phillips, the head of the Commission for Racial Equality, but his question that the British countryside may be guilty of passive apartheid is the genesis of this remarkable collection of short plays. It is an utterly absorbing collection which manages, despite its serious subject matter, to be amusing as well as thought provoking. This assortment manages to question and provoke at the same time, and each is perfectly conceived. To highlight one performance out of these would be unfair, as each was a complete as the next and the previous. Essential plays, and essential viewing. (Richard Johnstone)
