Experience In the Penal Colony
Although it's been a week since Philip Glass's In the Penal Colony hit the Linbury Studio, London, I'm still reeling. It was traumatic but not something anyone with a conscience can casually walk away from. Does any end justify such means? It's on tour throughout the UK - Oxford, Manchester, several places in Wales, Edinburgh. See a link to Music Theatre Wales website here for details. It's unforgettable. A reminder why we can't ever be complacent and shallow. A production like this needs to be experienced.
