00 (Argonaut)

By | Published on Tuesday 13 August 2019

It’s about to be the Millennium, and all hell is breaking loose. Well, that’s what it felt like watching ’00’ anyway! The play is formed of two halves and, while I’m still not sure whether I loved it or not, it definitely made me leave the theatre thinking. The first part is a well-written and straightforward narrative, following two sisters who find themselves in the woods with a couple convinced the world will end at midnight. The second is a madcap rush through all the possible futures and dreams of this strange group. Funny, moving and featuring some brilliant performances, it’s truly a weird, unusual watch – but one I wholeheartedly enjoyed.

Pleasance Dome, until 25 Aug.
