A round-up of reviews of Three Days in May at the Trafalgar Studios. Warren Clarke stars as Winston Churchill in Ben Brown’s thrilling political drama set during three of the most important days in British history. The play is directed by Alan Strachan and also stars Jeremy Clyde as Lord Halifax and Robert Demeger as Neville Chamberlain.
Average rating score for this production:
"It's a good play that could be even better, but Alan Strachan directs it with great finesse and Warren Clarke is utterly persuasive as Churchill."
"this is one of those all too rare evenings of theatre that make one feel genuinely proud to be British."
"It is hardly a dynamic play that Ben Brown has written - or that director Alan Strachan has staged - but a wordy and worthy drama of the "men in suits sitting around a table looking worried" genre."
"With his bullfrog face and some remarkably accurate slurring Warren Clarke is clearly having a ball as Winston, even if some of his gurning is a little too large for the stage. But the script itself is not entirely convincing."
