Mrs Klein is a witty and intense play and a study on mother-daughter relationships, very well acted by the 3 leading actresses. Definitely worth seeing at Almeida Theatre, a small stage set in the heart of vibrant North London borough of Islington, until Dec 5th 2009.

Today’s art column reviews Sophie Calle’s exhibition Talking to Strangers, Whitechapel

Gallery 77-82 Whitechapel High Street – London, 16 Oct 2009 – 3 Jan 2010, whose French version premièred at the Venice Biennale 2007.
This witty and inspiring exhibition showcases 107 women interpreting an email in which her partner …breaks up with her: 107 ways of reading, singing, commenting, highlighting grammar mistakes, reading through this man’s cowardliness, showing his flaws as a lover and his obvious manly way of blaming the breaking off on everyone else but on himself.
What a treat it would be if we all could do the same as Sophie Calle does and involve a couple of our best friends (world-famous actresses, opera singers, pop stars, ballet Etoile, criminal psychoanalysts, lawyers….) and let them disgrace our ex-boyfriends’ name through their professional skills!
What a subtle way of spreading the news that the man who just dumped you by email after all is a jerk!
