The setting was a bar..fitting in that the entire Hemingway novel centres around a group of people in the 1920's who are never out of arms length of a bottle or ten.
And this set takes us from bars and cafes in New York, Paris and Madrid but also to rivers and beaches in Spain and bedrooms in Montmartre, San Sebastian and Pamploma.
The cast is brilliant headed by a the wonderful anchor, Mike Iveson pictured with Aussie, Lucy Taylor
Props are used with incredible deftness and with such potent simplicity. Here a table becomes a mad bull in the ring
There was a coup involving the incredible sound effects which make door knocks, wine pouring and fish leaping, amongst hundreds of others....but I won't give it away!
This will be a smash and deservedly so...the only impediment will be the inability of some people with stunted imaginations to open up to the inner journey.
