REVIEW: Matchbox Theatre, Hamsptead Theatre ✭✭

Matchbox Theatre by Michael Frayn at the Hampstead Theatre

There is no complaint about the writing. Frayn creates situations and conveys ideas quickly and cleverly. His knowledge of human kind and its foibles, the things which interest and aggravate, is wide-ranging, and there is little in the world that he cannot cover in a comic sheen. Nina Wadia, alone of the six performers, has a very clear idea of the farceur, and she effortlessly creates a string of quite different characters, all of whom tick with eccentricity and tock with energy.
