Arts, London

Film locations often make for surprisingly good drama. Charles Wood's Veterans took us behind the scenes of The Charge of the Light Brigade. Here, Oliver Cotton's witty and perceptive play uses the shooting of a costume epic in rain-drenched Spain to explore British and American attitudes to life, art and the waiting game of making movies.

Cotton, who clearly knows the territory, creates a series of dramatic reversals. Two actors, the American Brad and English Stuart, are cooped up in a trailer waiting to shoot a scene in a film about Cortés's conquest of Mexico. But it is the seemingly brash Brad who can quote reams of Marlowe, while Stuart is momentarily stumped when asked to recite Shakespeare. And while Stuart attacks the status-consciousness of American actors and the imperialist pretensions of Hollywood, it is Brad who turns out to be made of the right stuff. »
