The Undoing Of Man (Wizards Theatre)

By | Published on Sunday 28 August 2011

The two monologues, connected loosely by themes of nature and the depletion of humanity, are both funny and depressing. The first half is entertaining throughout and begins with a man sitting on the loo, paralleling his own toilet experiences with that of Hunter S. Thompson, and slipping into this persona throughout; if you are a H.S.T. fan, you will like this. The second and more lyrical half revolves around a man alone in a forest, appalled by the state of humanity and what we have done to the environment, yet encouraging mankind to change, often through poignant poetic passages. Although a few left saying, “I didn’t get it”, check it out if you are looking for something smart and different.
