Dear Little Loz (Izzy Parriss Productions Ltd)

By | Published on Thursday 18 August 2022

Can someone confirm that a night out in Blackpool is this wild? With incredibly smooth transitions we jump between scenes, set at three different points in time, which all slowly reveal their¬†connection. There is undoubtedly one of these settings that stands out among the rest, because of its humour, but also because it’s heartbreaking, and best showcases Lauren Mayes’ acting talent and beautiful writing. It’s a piece that explores the up-side of living in a town like Blackpool, but also reveals the dangers that lurk at night. It took a while for the show’s deeper purpose to reveal itself and it could have made more of an impact. But it will be exciting to see what the company and Lauren do next, as this is nevertheless a powerful piece exploring – and written with – love.
