Kitty Litter (When I Say Jump)

By | Published on Sunday 21 August 2011

The sun is coming up on the morning after the night before. Don Pope has done something he shouldn’t have and the cat is yowling again. So begins ‘Kitty Litter’, a play which flickers between the surreal and the everyday as it brilliantly portrays the drug-fuelled adventures of a gang of Bristolian teen fantasists. Thomas Butler puts in a superb performance as the confused Don, his mind slowly unravelling throughout the show. Unfortunately, it’s ten minutes too long, and, more irritatingly, the programme gives away a major plot twist; these niggles aside, however, this is a well-scripted and excellently acted piece of theatre: the kind of comedy-drama ‘Skins’ only wishes it could be.

theSpaces On The Mile, 5 – 27 Aug (not 7, 14, 21), times vary, £6.00 – £8.00, fpp274.
