Nobody’s Home: A Modern Odyssey (Grafted Cede Theatre And Theatre Temonin)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

Grant has returned from a tour of duty to his loving wife in body, but his mind is still struggling to slot back into domesticity, battling terrifying and shifting monsters in the effort to reconnect to his wife. This ingenious and grotesque piece of theatre is incredibly written and devised by the same talented actors who star in it, Will Pinchin and Dorie Kinnear. It is so cleverly and intricately managed that you believe anything could emerge out of the central bathtub, as Dorie Kinnear contorts herself into myriad different characters. Ending with a climatic and cathartic flourish and a standing ovation from the audience, this review can’t do coherent justice to this astounding and moving play.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, 3 – 29 Aug (not 16, 23), 1.15pm (2.15pm), £8.00 – £10.00, fpp283.
