Johnson's Garret comes alive

Dr Johnson's Garret is playing host to 'A Dish of Tea with Dr Johnson' (now sold out) and the performance has received rave reviews (Guardian ****, Independent**** ).  

In this performance, Dr Johnson is brought alive by actor Ian Redford whilst Russell Barr performs as both James Boswell and many other characters ranging from George III to Johnson's housemate Anna Williams!  The house has been lucky to welcome a guest appearance from Trudie Styler as Mrs Thrale.  Michael Billingham ,writing in Tuesday's Guardian suggested that 'Rarely do a play and its setting match as well as this' and in his four-star review in the Independent, Paul Taylor said the performance was 'seriously site specific' and he 'did not want the evening to end.'

Many of the houses in London Shh provide intimate and quirky venues for a whole variety of performances from music recitals and plays to poetry readings and comedy evenings.
