Production images have been released for Sydney & the Old Girl, which runs at London’s Park Theatre until 30 November. Starring Miriam Margolyes, Mark Hadfield and Vivien Parry, Eugene O’Hare’s black comedy tells the story of a family’s obsession with versions of the past, and a paranoia about a future in a city which no longer feels like home.
London is becoming an alien landscape to Sydney Stock; a man who has lived for over fifty years cooped up with his mother Nell in her grubby East End home. Theirs is a relationship of mutually assured destruction where the ghosts of the past continue to stalk and accuse. As the twisted game around family inheritance reaches breaking point, Irish care worker Marion Fee finds herself an unwitting pawn being played from both sides.
