Hindsight (Fair Pley)

By | Published on Monday 5 August 2013

Time travel, mid and quarter-life crises, and a television-enthusiastic protagonist, combine here in an unsatisfying tale of one immature man’s incredibly uninteresting life, and his increasingly poor life choices and romantic obsession. As the plot unfolded, or rather unravelled, it grew increasingly convoluted. The acting simply wasn’t strong enough to save the show from its many plot-holes and shortcomings. Moments of comedy were few and far between, while any heartfelt sentiments promised by this comedy drama were non existent. The dialogue at times was almost painful, and this production struggled under the enormous strain of an increasingly ridiculous set of facts added to the initial premise, as well as its overall lacklustre execution.

The Assembly Rooms, until 25 Aug (not 12), 1.15pm.
