Breaker (Underbelly and Sodid Svid Theatre Company)

By | Published on Tuesday 27 August 2013

With a terrific script concerning life and mystery, ‘Breaker’ is a play that concerns itself with some heavy themes. It tells the story of a young man, coming back to his grandmother’s home on an isolated island, being confronted by a teacher who challenges his interpretation of things. With only two people on stage this is an intense production, touching all human emotions and exploring the characters’ relationship in depth. Unfortunately, they were so concerned with filling the stage that it became rather strained in places, and they lost some beautiful moments of tension by moving on too quickly. It didn’t quite seem like a finished product, but this was definitely a story worth telling.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 25 Aug (not 13), 2.00pm.
