Time for Another Hare Premiere-Revival Duo???
Date: 24 November 2003
Playwright David Hare isn't one to gather moss, that's for sure. Last week, his new play The Permanent Way premiered to rapturous reviews in York en route to the National in the new year. This week, his 1988 piece, The Secret Rapture, is revived in the West End. If that weren't enough, according to the Daily Mail, there are at least two more major Hare stagings on the none-too-distant horizon: yet another new play at the National and, care of Sam Mendes' new production company Scamp, a revival of Pravda, the 1985 excoriation of Fleet Street that Hare co-wrote with Howard Brenton. The new projects are being linked with two very hot directors: respectively, former Royal Court artistic director and Billy Elliot star Stephen Daldry and Edward Hall, now fresh from success at the National with Kenneth Branagh's Edmond and in the West End with his Propeller production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
