Theatre Review: Kissing Sid James (Jermyn Street)

This isn’t a sentence that I ever imagined I’d find myself writing, somehow, but may I confess that I rather enjoyed Kissing Sid James last night? Robert Farquhar’s romantic comedy about a dirty weekend gone awry debuted at Liverpool’s Unity Theatre in 1992 and has subsequently been produced in countries from Slovakia to South Africa. Having begun life at the New Red Lion last year, Jason Lawson’s engaging revival went on to enjoy a run in New York as part of the Brits Off Broadway season. The production now takes up residence at the Jermyn Street, a venue whose intimacy suits this small-scale two-hander well.  Full review at OneStopArts.
