Alexander Zeldin's Faith, Hope and Charity receives rave reviews

The final play in ​Alexander Zeldin's trilogy on austerity is set in a crumbling community centre. This follows Beyond Caring which explored zero hour contracts and Love which followed the lives of those living in temporary accommodation.

In an opinion piece in The Stage Richard Jordan says it 'reaffirms Alexander Zeldin, who has directed and written the play, as one of the finest and most exciting directors currently at work in the UK'.

Faith Hope and Charity closes this Saturday 12th at the Dorfman, National Theatre 

Here's what other critics have to say:

★★★★ 'Alexander Zeldin’s plays are like no one else’s: they humanely record the grim realities of the new age of austerity.' The Guardian

★★★★ 'An utterly necessary and deeply compassionate depiction of the kinds of lives that it is all too easy to ignore' What's on Stage

★★★★ 'This powerful new play by socially minded writer-director Alexander Zeldin, the third in a trilogy taking an unflinching look at various aspects of austerity Britain.'  The Telegraph

★★★★ 'His plays are about more than middle-class guilt and taking your medicine. They radiate warmth, care and belief in people.' Time Out

★★★★ 'There’s an extraordinary restraint in Zeldin’s writing, much as in his direction, plus a willingness to let time pass and allow silence to saturate the performance gradually, like steady rain soaking through a borrowed jumper' The Stage

★★★★  'Alexander Zeldin’s latest agonising slice of realism' The Up and Coming
