Andrea’s Got Two Boyfriends (New Salisbury Players)

By | Published on Thursday 11 August 2011

Lucky Andrea! This show is set in a New York care facility, where we meet three developmentally challenged adults and their counsellor. Essentially, it explores the dynamics of human relationships and the various restrictions we all experience as human beings. Our narrator (the counsellor), is the only character who’s not developmentally challenged but this play is as much about his story as the other characters, and explores the frustration he feels working within the caring profession. With minute attention to detail, as well as some clever scenes which explore the characters’ disabilities with insight and sensitivity, the performances in this show are highly accomplished and serve to do much justice to what is clearly a well written and researched piece.

Greenside, 5 – 27 Aug (not 7, 14, 21), 11.30am (12.15pm), £5.00 – £7.00, fpp237.
