Everything’s Elsewhere (ThisEgg)

By | Published on Saturday 3 August 2013

The energetic, witty and loveable duo Sam and Bel are best friends. Despite their fondness and reliance on each other, the decision to live together is a disastrous one; the show recounts their daily movements and everyday collaborations, often with hilarious results. These moments of reasonable normality are punctuated by arguments and violent outbursts highlighting an emotional dependency which leaves no room for individuality; a suffocating realisation. Bel and Sam are believable, understandable characters both in their wit and sensitivity, and the addition of physical theatre is both funny and fitting. There are, however, moments of awkwardness in the show, and the ending is rather weak, leaving audience members baffled. A pleasant but somewhat forgettable 40 minutes.

C nova, until 13 Aug, 12.05pm.
