Festen, by David Eldridge, is an extraordinary play that was hailed by the London Independent as “an embodiment of what theatre should be.” On the evening of a birthday celebration for a family’s patriarch, the forced jollity of the characters highlights the grotesque cruelty they seek to conceal. Director Gordon explains that Festen “forces us to confront our own moral inertia.”.
