Repent / Words (Goldsmiths Drama Society)

By | Published on Wednesday 31 August 2011

An eye for an eye is the controversial subject explored in the first, of a dual performance by The Drama Society of Goldsmiths. ‘Repent’ tells the story of a mother who has lost her daughter, and a sister who has lost her twin through murder. But what would you do if you were asked to pardon the killer from a death row sentence by his mother? It’s an emotional performance, with only slight over-acting. The second performance is more erratic, but perhaps that’s the point; ‘Words’ is a physical performance piece that looks at communication and the lack of it in society. Sadly it looked rather untidy, but this could be due to the restricted performance space.

Laughing Horse at The Phoenix, 20 – 28 Aug, 5.00pm (6.10pm), free, fpp292.
