ORANGE TREE THEATRE FESTIVAL
Beth took part in the Orange Tree Theatre Festival, Sam Walters’ final production as Artistic Director. Beth performed in Programme 2 in a play called MOBILE 4 by Stephen Jeffreys and directed by John Terry.
From the writer of The Libertine, and an acclaimed adaptation of Dickens’ Hard Times at the Orange Tree, which toured Europe in the 1980s. Set at the time of the Orange Tree’s inception in the 1970s, during an era of creative idealism and experiments in alternative living, Mobile 4 follows the late-night unravelling and disintegration of an artistic commune. As they install their artwork in a gallery, will their idealism, hopes and friendships last until morning?

"...in Cordingly's heartfelt performance, the pain of betrayal is real and acute. It is this complexity of flavour that makes it more than just a big belly of laughs; it's a richly satisfying dish."
