Easter Eggs (BEDS)

By | Published on Tuesday 20 August 2013

The best thing about this meandering, ill-conceived mess of a show is the end. I say that not because it is dreadful – although it is dreadful – but because the play was so lacking in drama, the plot non-existent, the scene changes arbitrary, that when it finished with the cast in tableau, and the house lights came up, the nonplussed audience weren’t quite sure it had finished. The subsequent 30 seconds of strained, awkward silence were more entertaining than the play itself. This tale of privileged, middle class kidults – one at uni studying “performance”, the other an aspiring musician – and their nagging parents was whiny and self-indulgent, and presumably autobiographical. OK for a drama workshop, not a play performed to the public.

theSpace @ Surgeon’s Hall, until 24 Aug, 3.05pm.
