On Friday night I had the great pleasure to watch Old Millhillian Harry Melling acting alongside the wonderful Simon Russell Beale in a revival of Harold Pinter’s dark comedy, The Hothouse. The farce-like production is set in a state-run sanatorium and investigates the issues of government control and state-approved torture. The play has had excellent reviews, with Henry Hitchens, writing in the Evening Standard, particularly praising Harry’s performance, saying, ‘Harry Melling is excellent’ and calling his performance ‘one of the production’s great pleasures’. The production runs until 3rd August.
