Editorial Reviews

Rarely does a stage play combine science fiction, social dystopia, and laugh-out-loud comedy so seamlessly (or ever, really). The versatile Jared Harris (who has played Henry VIII and John Lennon in his career) plays Jerome, a reclusive electronic music composer who lives in a dicey section of town in a future "sometime quite soon" and has inherited, Nan, an android, from a neighbor. Anne Heche, sounding so perfectly put upon as Jerome's demanding former wife, and Moira Quirk, as the undemanding new mistress, have a wonderful time in dual roles taking turns providing the mechanical voice of the robot. Clever use of music "sampling" techniques turn Heche and Quirk's voices into futuristic songs. Marvelously inventive and entertaining.

Publisher's Summary

Starring Anne Heche and Jared Harris, the hilarious Henceforward... is one of Alan Ayckbourn’s most unusual works. In the near-future, a composer with creative block tries to re-unite with his estranged wife and daughter, hoping their reconciliation will free his mind to create his greatest musical masterpiece. But his own erratic impulses hinder his journey to creative freedom.

Theatre Works full cast performance starring Jared Harris as Jerome, Anne Heche as Nan (act 1) and Corrina, Jack Davenport as Mervyn, Paula Jane Newman as Geain, Moira Quirk as Zoe and Nan (act 2), and Darren Richardson as Lupus.
