Due to overwhelming demand for tickets for the current sold out run of Misty – written and performed by Arinzé Kene, directed by Omar Elerian, the Bush Theatre has confirmed that the current run is extended until 27 April.
The show opened on 20 March to rave reviews from the London and national press, and will continue to play to packed houses during the run extension.
The Up Coming ★★★★★
Broadway World UK ★★★★★
The Stage ★★★★
Sometimes, he’s swallowed whole by balloons; sometimes, he’s surrounded by them. The image gives Omar Elerian’s staging a rich visual flair, and Rajha Shakiry’s concrete design fills up with the colour of Daniel Denton’s projections – a neat encapsulation of reality and imagination.
Time Out ★★★★
‘Kene blows up an orange balloon. It deflates, like his ego. From then on, balloons are used as a striking visual metaphor throughout Omar Elerian’s beautifully directed and Rajha Shakiry’s beautifully designed production. Kene wrestles with balloon; later, he gets trapped in one. It’s a pure visual way to show his struggle with telling a story’
