Very belatedly I have realised why the face promoting The Kitchen is so familiar:

Tom Brooke, who plays Peter in The Kitchen, was one of the two actors in I Am The Wind, a play which was on at the Young Vic earlier this year and which I loved.

My feature on I Am The Wind is here:

I want to talk about The Kitchen and I promise to do so next week. I saw it when it was being filmed for its NT Live on Thursday and I saw it again this evening (Saturday). I enjoyed it and so I will write about it.

At this point, all I wanted to say was that Tom Brooke is definitely, in my very humble opinion, one to watch. The Kitchen is an ensemble piece and, as this is the National Theatre, all the actors in the ensemble are excellent. That said, when I watched this for the second time (ie today), my attention was constantly drawn towards Tom Brooke. He has such an expressive face and body and I could not take my eyes off him. I definitely want to see more of him!
