Definitely Louise (Bethany Heath)

By | Published on Friday 9 August 2019

A young woman in her flat muses over life, love and friendship. It’s a simple setting and premise for a one-woman show, which is saved from falling flat by an engaging and energetic performance from Bethany Heath. However, it’s the script that holds the show back. Seemingly disjointed and somewhat cliched at times, the hour long show started to drag as we moved from one tale to another without ever really going anywhere, while the shock twist at the end didn’t serve as a satisfying climax. Thankfully the humour throughout, as the central character pondered her failed acting auditions and delusions of being famous, made for an amusing watch at least.

Gilded Balloon Rose Theatre, until 25 Aug.
