From Me To 3792

Life is boring in Sutton Coldfield. Diane has the supposed ideal lifestyle in suburbia however she is feeling the tedium immensely. Her husband is driven entirely by his career and the relationship has become something of an empty husk, the children have flown the nest and the Daily Mail reader across the street does little to provide entertainment. In a bid to escape the boredom Diane begins to write to an inmate on death row in America. She comes to rely on the letters, empathising with the prisoner who she feels has become victim of a miscarriage of justice. What begins as an exciting insight to what she views as a more eventful reality she comes to realise their similarities, pouring out her feelings on her empty lifestyle until realising she is as much a prisoner in her own home as 3792 is on death row. This is a very impressive and down-to-earth solo performance. Caroline Nash has been very well cast and reflects the character that David Hendon’s script tries to convey superbly. The script was very well paced; what threatened to lead nowhere transpired to be a reflection on the boredom of suburbia, the twists and emotional ride that suddenly arrive take the audience by surprise. A captivating script performed with a very special performance.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

The Blurb

An entertaining one-woman play about Diane. She has an idyllic lifestyle, but a career-focused husband forces her to look elsewhere for companionship. Writing to a prisoner on death row, however, has far-reaching consequences.
