Did the play blow me away or suddenly shine a beacon of light on some revolutionary original meaning? No, it did not. However, I am not sure it is meant to; in fact, I think that anyone waiting for that is perhaps also waiting for Godot. ***
'Bridle' is an incredibly honest, relatable and thought provoking piece.****
A truly electrifying performance.*****
Junkyard is fun, rebellious, and unapologetically honest. An almost completely anti-musical musical and for that I love it. ****
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ An epic in all senses of the word, My Brilliant Friend is a compelling, often heartbreaking story which will draw you in from the moment you sit down.
'Vicious, vindictive and vitriolic, it's not an easy watch, but it is an exhilarating one'
Ellinson is effortless. She's funny, feisty and seems to glide through the piece as though she were flying her beloved F16 fighter jet.
For this 'Dream' you'll want to take everything you were taught, every other production you ever saw, every preconception you had, and throw it in the bin. Then walk into the theatre and prepare for a re-education.
In an ideal world this play should feel outdated, and yet it feels more poignant than ever.
