REVIEW: Taken At Midnight, Minerva Theatre ✭✭✭✭✭

Penelope Wilton in Taken At Midnight

This is a terrific piece of new writing; spare, engaging, brimming with interest and history. It does what all great plays about actual historical events do: takes you to the time and lets you experience that time through the souls of the characters who propel the narrative, but in a way that is modern, fresh and zinging with power.
