WHAT SHADOWS at the Birmingham Rep

May 8, 2017

Chris Hannan’s new play WHAT SHADOWS at the Birmingham Rep was an engrossing peek into a view of local history with global consequences. The incredibly accomplished actor Ian McDiarmid gives the performance of a lifetime as the British politician Enoch Powell. I was also incredible impressed with Paula Wilcox who plays his friend Marjorie Jones and Brid Brennan who plays his wife Pamela Powell. This play is a considered conversation about the Conservative MP for Wolverhampton and allows us to understand more about the man without judging from his reputation. There is a truth to this play which gives it great depth and great relevance to our lives today as well as back then.
