About the Show
Zeldin’s new play set in a local community hall exposes the harsh realities of austerity in the UK.
Alexander Zeldin (Beyond Caring, LOVE) pens a new drama which follows the lives of residents in a local community who gather in a town hall. The play sheds light on the lived experiences of people struggling to survive as a result of austerity and cuts in funding to local councils in the UK.
...these stories are worth telling because they’re good stories, ones that offer representation for a vast swathe of society that’s usually either untouched or sensationalised by theatre and film.'
...seems to me an utterly necessary and deeply compassionate depiction of the kinds of lives that it is all too easy to ignore. It seems artless, yet is a superbly delicate and artful piece of work...'
Sometimes the biggest moments in theatre reside in the smallest of gestures. Faith, Hope & Charity is a mosaic of fleeting glances and unexpressed emotions, sudden rages and brutal revelations...'
There’s an extraordinary restraint in Zeldin’s writing, much as in his direction, plus a willingness to let time pass and allow silence to saturate the performance gradually...Grim yet galvanising.'
Rich in empathy, dramatically raw, Alexander Zeldin's bleak study of society on the edge...Zeldin’s honesty is such that he can’t give his characters 'voices' that they wouldn’t have in their real circumstances.'
