1st Night Photos: Hall's Hampstead Enlightenment
Date: 6 October 2010
Edward Hall launched his reign as artistic director of Hampstead Theatre last night under the watchful eye of his famous father Peter Hall, and actors including Tara Fitzgerald, Ron Cook, Tim Pigott-Smith and Alison Steadman.
Hall opens his tenure with the UK premiere of Shelagh Stephenson’s modern psychological thriller Enlightenment, centres on what happens when a gap-year student travelling in the Far East disappears, leaving his parents in limbo. Unsure who to turn to, or even whether he’s alive or dead, they frantically seek clues, comfort and strength. But as the truth emerges, a net of lies and deceit – darker than anything they had imagined – begins to close in around them.
