Corrie! - Review

Last week we promised you a review of Corrie! - the play by Jonathan Harvey which condenses 50 years of Coronation Street into 2 hours. I don't want to go into much detail as I don't want to spoil the action for anybody who has already got their tickets but without doubt it succeeds in its intention to be a funny and affectionate tribute to the past five decades.

It manages to capture the drama, humour, tragedy and pathos of the TV programme and one minute you've got a lump in your throat, the next you've got tears of laughter rolling down your cheeks. The script is fantastic, covering most of the main events from over the years and the cast do a brilliant job of capturing the very essence of all the characters they portray.

If you're a Corrie fan and haven't booked your tickets yet, check the website for when it's coming to your area and get on down to your local theatre for 2 hours of great drama.

Facebook users can see a gallery of photos from the production, here.

I really enjoyed it, the characters were easily identifiable and were each played extremely well. Very funny, poignant and bang up to date!

Please, please, please let them record the play for dvd for all of us Corrie fans who are unable to see CORRIE! in person! It would be such a gift to us all!

I agree a DVD would be excellent but it'll be a while in coming yet. The play is touring until July this year and then who knows what after that. Hopefully it'll be successful enough to secure a run in the West End. And maybe touring abroad too?
