Stevie: ★★★★ from Sunday Express

Stevie Review
By Michael Arditti, Sunday Express

I once again commend Stevie, Hugh Whitemore’s delicate biographical drama about Stevie Smith, the Sybil of suburbia, which has transferred from Chichester to Hampstead, and if there is any theatrical justice, should head straight to the West End.

Whitemore seamlessly integrates Smith’s writing with her private life, in particular her failed engagement to Freddy (the versatile Chris Larkin) and her devotion to her ‘lion aunt’ (the wonderfully doughty Lynda Baron).

Christopher Morahan’s production is pitch-perfect and Zoe Wanamaker’s central performance is, if anything, even more incisive, wry and moving than before.
