Rowan Atkinson's latest
So attached are we to Mr Bean, it came as a shock to learn that he has been transformed into Quartermaine. However, all's well that ends well, or in this case, sadly. (In theatre, well-played tragedy is always cause for delight.)
Quartermain's Terms represents the West End at its very best: a great play, beautifully directed and acted by an outstanding cast . . .
Quartermaine’s Terms, first staged in 1981, is perhaps Simon Gray’s finest work, an English drama that can genuinely stand comparison with Chekhov in its ability to combine comedy with a powerful undertow of melancholy and loss.
Rowan Atkinson plays St John Quartermaine brilliantly.
