Samuel Adamson’s Thames Path play

Those who know the Thames Path between Deptford and London Bridge will enjoy Some Kind of Bliss at the Trafalgar Studios in Whitehall.

The seventy minute play is a solo performance by Lucy Briers and was written for her by playwright Samuel Adamson who knows the Thames Path well. His last play Southwark Fair was set on the riverside outside City Hall.

Lucy plays Rachel who is walking the Path downstream. There are plenty of references to familiar landmarks such as the Dr Salter statue near The Angel pub. Adamson’s words convey an interesting feel for Bermondsey Wall.

Lucy Osborne’s set is a river wall with a flexible foreshore.

Some Kind of Bliss is at Trafalgar Studios, Whitehall, until Saturday 15 December.
