Mike Bartlett's stirring play provocatively questions our responsibilities as friends and citizens who sometimes let each other down.
A playful and touching two-hander with a mischievous, crafty look at friendship in its many forms.
One of them went on the anti-war protest, shouted their lungs out, then got horrendously and staggeringly drunk. The other stayed home, watched TV for a bit, and thought about the future.
A & B are very different and their relationship is no longer quite as united as it once was. Things fracture when A goes on a march to protest against the government's military intervention in another country, while B supports the war.
This dynamic play also touches on substance abuse, lack of mental health access, and the ever-present divisiveness of politics & policies, even among the best of friends.
Against the backdrop of the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, An Intervention is a necessary conduit for navigating our way and making sense of our lives.
