Opening night for Robbie Durham and Verity Quade in Sunny Afternoon 28.10.2014
Robbie Durham and Verity Quade have their press night this evening for Sunny Afternoon. Following a sold-out run at Hampstead theatre, the critically acclaimed production transfers to the West End's Harold Pinter Theatre.
With music and lyrics by Ray Davies, a new book by Joe Penhall and direction by Edward Hall, Sunny Afternoon depicts the rise to stardom of The Kinks. Set against the back-drop of a Britain caught mid-swing between the conservative 50s and riotous 60s, this production explores the euphoric highs and agonising lows of one of Britain’s most iconic bands and the irresistible music that influenced generations.
