Imogen Stubbs talks about her new play Little Eyolf at the Jermyn Street Theatre:
“It’s a fascinating portrayal about the effect of the death of a child on a failing marriage, the grief and the banality and depth of relationships. It is like when you say ‘Oh my God I can’t bear my split ends’ and then you get cancer. You wonder why you wasted so much time being obsessed by the petty issues. When something terrible happens in your life it leaves you having to face the stark reality of who you are and what you believe in. There is something very heroic about being stripped to nothing and carrying on. It makes you as human as you can be, finding out whether you are equipped to survive these terrible events.” – The Times
