By Penelope Lively, adapted by Simon Reade

The Lowry, 17 February 2014

As Claudia lies on her death bed, it becomes the seat of her memories.

Those memories, the history of the violent twentieth century, the people in her life, parade before her.  We hear Claudia’s overarching monologue, then episodes from her life are played out for us.

It is an elegant stage set-up and Jane Asher’s central performance keeps one’s attention throughout.

Moon Tiger is at The Lowry until 22 February, further details are here.
