The Big Bite Size Breakfast (White Room Theatre’s Bite Size Plays)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

Like stepping into a Michelin-starred restaurant, I found that meal-time meant show-time. Enjoying complimentary welcome croissants and coffees with ‘Uncomfortable Silences’ – a slightly unchallenging tomato soup kind of sketch – we then proceeded hungrily through the rest of the day’s delectable menu. Alice Robinson and Sean Williams gave zesty performances in the wonderfully British and marmalade-like ‘Vintage’ and ‘Transactions’, making them memorable crowd-pleasers. Sketches performed by Andy Hutchison and Lisa Beresford generally had less edge, but when the four joined forces in ‘The Key to the Mystic Halls of Time’, breakfast was rounded off on a very high note. When next asked how I like my eggs in the morning, I’ll reply, “With an hour of theatre, please”.

Pleasance Dome, 3 – 28 Aug (not 16, 25), 10.30am (11.30am), £10.00, fpp243.
