Body Of Water (Made From Scratch)

By | Published on Sunday 21 August 2011

Have I walked into a nightclub by mistake? No, we are actually at a squat party in a central London mansion. The bass is pounding through my body, with lasers spinning and party-goers dancing with ecstasy (both kinds). In the middle of this chaos is a boat and two rather serious-looking people who are not partaking in the dancing. This is a funny and thoroughly modern play exploring the world of youth, illegal parties, drug culture, friendship, ideals and mental health. The large cast are young with heaps of energy, which is brought to the fore by some strong performances. A clever overlapping of scenes adds to the fast pace, keeping audience enthralled throughout. Recommended.

Pleasance Courtyard, 3 – 29 Aug, 3.25pm (4.25pm), £8.00 – £10.00, fpp245.
