Re-review: Plastic Figurines, New Diorama

"Mum told me that there was something in his brain that was different"

Not got a huge amount more to say about the heart-breakingly beautiful Plastic Figurines that I didn't say in my review from 2015 when I ranked it in my top ten plays of the years. Ella Carmen Greenhill's play, produced by Box of Tricks, returned for another run at the New Diorama, retaining Jamie Samuel as autistic Mikey but switching in Vanessa Schofield as his older sister Rose who is forced to leave university to become his carer after a family tragedy. I loved it all over again and I'd recommend you go along but it's closed now!

Running time: 75 minutes (without interval)

Booking until 22nd October
