Close Quarters featured in Susannah Clapp’s Best Theatre of 2018

Bowen’s intelligent, dramatic script is dynamically delivered by a crack theatre squad: set it in your sights…Here’s hoping that this Sheffield Theatres and Out of Joint co-production will be sent on a tour of duty around the rest of the country.
Overall, the script is strong, with a sense of the different dialects for each character, and a nice balance between comedy and drama; action and reflection…The direction and choreography keep the play tight and engrossing. The set is used well with action happening at multiple heights and clever integration of props and scenery, along with a few unexpected surprises.
It’s an engaging watch, and though some of the themes may feel familiar, there’s plenty of innovation in the setting, dialogue and production that makes this well-worth seeing.
💣 Absolutely loved #CloseQuarters by @Out_of_Joint / @crucibletheatre. Complex and layered investigation of women in the British army. Left inspired and empowered! With incredible design by @maxjonesdesign and @shielssj. Catch the final shows tonight!!! #feminist 💪🏼 pic.twitter.com/zcWsPEucEw— Benjamin Thapa (@_benjaminthapa) November 10, 2018
