Review: Daytona, Theatre Royal Haymarket @TRH_London

Yet another play with an American setting in the West End but, unlike Other Desert Cities, Good People or Bakersfield Mist, class is not at the centre of this one, although the contrast between two lifestyles is still there. I don’t want to give too much away, but Daytona is about loyalty and betrayal of those around us and of our heritage, as two people take on new identities for very different reasons. This is one of those plays that seems better now than when I watched it but I cannot explain why without giving the story away. I’ve ended up writing and re-writing this review so many times but I still can’t do so effectively. Sorry – but I can say it is definitely worth seeing.
