1st Night Photos: Reiss' Test with Second Play

By • West End
Anya Reiss' second play The Acid Test opened last night (23 May, previews from 13 May) at the Royal Court with a cast including Phoebe Fox, Vanessa Kirby, Denis Lawson and Lydia Wilson.

The production, directed by Simon Godwin, follows the success of Reiss' Spur of the Moment which debuted at the theatre last summer and went on to win Most Promising Playwright prizes at both the Evening Standard and Critics’ Circle awards.

Questioning whether age equals maturity The Acid Test tells the story of Dana, Ruth and Jess downing shots and emptying vodka bottles to console the heart-broken, to comfort the anxious and just pass the time. Kicked out from the family home Jess’s dad, Jim, invades the party with just as much recklessness as the girls. As the night passes, Friday night in becomes high drama.
