LONDON: Now or Later (Royal Court) - 9/10/08

Just over an hour in playing time, Christopher Shinn's "Now or Later" as directed by Royal Court Artistic Director Domonic Cooke is urgent, edge-of-your seat theater, if somewhat truncated. The setting is election day, and incriminating material on the Democratic presidential candidate's son has been found on the internet. This play of debate and ideas is passionately performed by the cast, and designed smartly and sharply by Hildegard Brechtler. Electrifying.

Rating: ****1/2 (out of *****)
