Writer Andrew Cartmel has a new play at London's White Bear Theatre from tonight. Under the Eagle is a darkly humorous political drama exploring the nature of Britain's 'special relationship' with the United States. It runs from Tuesday February 19 to Sunday March 9 [not on Mondays] at the White Bear, 138 Kennington Park Road.
Tuesday to Saturday performances start at 7.30 pm, while Sunday's show is a 5pm matinee. Tickets are £12 [concessions £10]. Nearest tube station is Kennington. Call the box office on 020 7793 9193.
I thoroughly enjoyed Andrew's last play at the same venue, despite it being staged on one of the hottest days of the year in a venue without air conditioning. That shouldn't be a problem this time, with winter still leaving ice on the great outdoors most nights.
