Rathmore’s Whippet (Five One Productions)

By | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2011

Claustrophobia tightens as soon as we enter the dark little room where a man sits on stage biting his nails and shuffling around the room. Although ‘Rathmore’s Whippet’ is slow initially, we begin to edge in to this little world where two mysterious fugitives hide out with an unknown female hostage. The erratic relationships that arise between the three produce some genuinely funny moments – even as a small audience, we were all laughing. Mysterious from start to finish, it leaves one thinking about what’s real, what’s not, and how we trick our own minds into conflicting realities. This is a momentary flash into the corner of your mind that’s usually kept locked.

C eca, 3 – 29 Aug, 6.20pm (7.45pm) £6.50 – £9.50, fpp291.
