Driftwood

04 May 2017 - 04 Jun 2017

A charming and engaging blend of acrobatics, dance and witty physical clowning with an appealing down-at-heel design aesthetic. Some of the stunts are jaw-dropping, and performed with an insouciance that meens they often also benefit from the element of surprise. The clever use of very simple lighting and excellent choices of backing music also make this stand out.

Salome

02 May 2017 - 15 Jul 2017

A rather tedious and somewhat old fashioned production. When I saw everyone from the outset moving around the stage as if in a pot of treacle, my heart sank. I saw this style of show in my student days in the 70's but now that I'm a boring old f*rt, I'm afraid I found it all a bit ho-hum. There are many competing audio inputs which, combined with slow mo acting left me nodding off. There's the a constant low, threatening hum and non-stop Hebrew (I presume) chanting/singing over which the actors often had to shout to be heard. The result is that there is very little 'drama' and to much noise and 'theatre' (can't think of another word) that get in the way of the story.
