REVIEW: The Black Book, Sargent Theatre ✭✭✭✭

The Black Book at the Sargent Theatre

This is a dynamic, challenging and gripping piece of dramatic theatre. It’s confronting in a number of ways, especially if you have known someone who took their own life. There are sections full of lyrical beauty, others dripping with trenchant scepticism. Sometimes it is easiest to listen to the actors rather than watch them, because the subject matter is so close to the bone.
