Making Noise Quietly

Whitehall Theatre (0171-369 1735)

From a conscientious objector who has a chance encounter in the hot summer of 1944, to the Falklands-era tale of a snobbish mother hearing about her son marrying beneath him, Deborah Bruce's lovely, poetic revival of Robert Holman's 1986 triptych is finely wrought and delicately nuanced. A beautifully unsentimental Eleanor Bron leads a fine cast who play the writing's wonderful open-endedness with haunting grace.
