"Miranda Emmerson is a genius at portraying summer nights in the city "

Miranda Emmerson is a genius at portraying summer nights in the city — with all their “distemper and secretions” — and a cruel, surprisingly small world in which privilege and prejudice quash any compassion. Fortunately, light relief is provided by the backstage goings-on at the Galaxy Theatre in Soho, where, in order to succeed, the actors need “lead stomachs, steel minds and loose knickers”.
