Sydney & The Old Girl - Park Theatre 31st October - 30th November 2019 31st October 2019 to 1st December 2019

Miriam returns to The Park Theatre in the world premiere black comedy of Eugene O’Hare’s Sydney & The Old Girl. Nell and Sydney Stock are at war – and it’s mutually assured destruction. After 50 years cooped up in the same shabby East London house where ghosts of a hard life still linger, the points scored in never ending arguments continue to bind the pair together. And then, there is the not so simple matter of the inheritance… As the twisted game between mother and son reaches breaking point, Irish care worker Marion Fee finds herself an unwitting pawn, played from both sides. Nell will stop at nothing for her bitter triumph over Sydney – but he has his own plans on how to end this once and for all. Margolyes previously performed at the Park Theatre in the sell-out hit Madame Rubinstein in 2017 Acerbic humour from O’Hare, coupled with the inimitable Miriam Margolyes in a rare London stage performance, make Sydney & The Old Girl a production not to be missed.

For Miriam becoming an Australian citizen seven years ago at the age of 71, was “a day of supreme happiness and real joy”. But it also made her realise how little she knew about the place she could now call home – despite having come and gone from Australia for nearly 40 years.
