Some Small Love Story The Flanagan Collective

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

Spot-lit against a dark, naked set, four actors stand in front of you. The starkness of the stage is reflected not only in the starkness of their performance, but in the raw human vulnerability of the way their two stories unfold. This is beautifully acted and sung, and the witty realism of the script brings equally poignant laughter and tears; it’s a whole rollercoaster of emotions that reflect the grieving process it describes. In a production this bare, every detail has been considered, and the result is tight, gripping and powerfully intense. Traditionally romantic, yet still honest and relevant, this reverberates with all your forgotten childhood notions and triumphantly displays the ageless quality of true love. Life-changing theatre.
