‘Miracle of Istanbul’ drama’s action makes up for words
Theatre: One Night in Istanbul. By Nicky Allt. Gaiety Theatre. Run concluded. Rating ***. Reviewed by Andrew Lynch.
The 2005 Champions League final was the sort of epic drama that most playwrights would struggle to invent. An unfancied Liverpool team found themselves 3-0 down to AC Milan at half-time, equalised in the space of six heady minutes and ended up winning on penalties. Since then the ‘Miracle of Istanbul’ has become a hook for Nicky Allt’s enjoyably knockabout stage show, which also flirts with disaster, but just about manages to deliver the goods.
