Buoy (The Revolving Shed)

By | Published on Saturday 10 August 2013

Hipsters are everywhere, so it is fitting that you cannot escape them in ‘Buoy’. The pretentious subculture is what everyone wants to belong to in this play, following students on a haphazard mission to form a band. Essentially, the actors execute incredibly entertaining caricatures of every affected moron you knew at university. In particular, Edward Elliott could have his own show as Jordan, so amusing is it to watch him prance around in a fur jacket delivering droll remarks. However, the script feels like a work in progress; the plot meanders between the jokes and then ends abruptly. It is a pity that the characters we grow to care so much about are not given a proper finale.

C aquila, until 17 Aug, 4.35pm.
