Want to rediscover your city of London? Internationally renowned director of film and now stage Stephen Poliakoff, presents a new, and rather dark, perspective of London in My City. Looking at how it has been morphing and changing throughout history.
Follow the reuniting of a group of teachers and their former pupils, now adults, and the slightly unexpected series of events and stories which follow. We found that with little idea of what to expect, we were kept constantly on the edge of our seats and never being able to predict where the story would go next and we certainly could never have guessed at the ending.
There are some rather grim events mentioned and it depicts a rather dark image of the city, so I probably wouldn't suggest this for children. It is also a bit of a psychological exploration of how people and places change, something that Poliakoff does flawlessly.
