Review: Fanny & Faggot, @tinyyoungco @TabardTheatreuk

My interest in the play was sparked by the writer,┬áJack Thorne, who so brilliantly adapted Let The Right One In for the stage, and the writing is indeed excellent. It tells the true story of two moments in the life of Mary Bell, firstly at age 11 after she murdered two young boys, then at age 21 when she absconded from open prison with another prisoner to hitch up with a couple of young soldiers in Blackpool. It’s a sensible choice by the Tiny Young Theatre Company as it could only work with young actors. The performance was not as tight as the writing and it could have done with more rehearsal or more experienced direction but the youth and enthusiasm of the company make up for it and the play is very well worth watching. It’s only on for a few days so grab your chance to see it at this lovely little venue next to Turnham Green station with plenty of free parking spaces from 7 pm.
