B29 Productions Ltd and J. Alan Davis for St. George Entertainment Ltd in association with Park Theatre present the London Premiere of

Jonah and Otto

by Robert Holman

Tim Stark's cumulatively mesmeric production. Peter Egan and Alex Waldmann are close to perfection.

Quiet and beautiful with an explosive centre.

The writing is crystalline but tender, meaty as well as dark.

Peter Egan’s Otto is like an onion, gradually unpeeling himself – a performance of braided intricacies, unshowy and generous.

Peter Egan and Alex Waldmann both give richly textured performances. Egan is measured but aching… Waldmann is tense and fizzy.

_God doesn't care about you. Why should I?

Over the course of a single day two men share their solitude and unfold their secrets. They disagree with each about women, about lust and about guilt. They question the power of magic, of redemption and the price of freedom, each seeing himself more clearly through the eyes of the other.

Tim Stark directs Peter Egan and Alex Waldmann in the London Premiere of Robert Holman's "intricately layered creation… brimming with emotional wonder" ★★★★ Independent.

Robert Holman is the acclaimed author of Making Noise Quietly and co-writer, with Simon Stephens and David Eldridge, of A Thousand Stars Explode in the Sky. His extensive writing career has included commissions from The Royal Court, the Bush and the RSC.
