Grief

Grief has been playing at the ADC Theatre this past week. I had the opportunity to meet up with the cast and crew the hour before their final performance. Here is a look at the photos from our photoshoot.

Text from Camdram:

A spectacular and devastating portrait of love and loss in a family home wounded by war.  In a quiet slice of 1950s suburban life, war widow Dorothy lives with her daughter Victoria and older brother Edwin. More and more isolated from her married friends with their successful children, Dorothy tries to cope with Victoria’s increasingly hostile behaviour. But is she doing her best, as she thinks, or is she responsible for what threatens to become an unbearable situation?

From the writer of ‘Abigail’s Party’, Mike Leigh combines brilliantly observed humour with stunning sadness to create something truly unforgettable.
