Kiss, Cuddle, Torture (Black Dingo Productions)

By | Published on Tuesday 20 August 2013

This stunning script by Jennifer Adam steps away from the comedy majority of the Fringe and digs deeper into the harsh and real issues within relationships. As two cleaners and an assistant bond over their refuge of the workplace, they support one another through the storm; this was a performance which haunted me long after leaving the venue, with its sensitive portrayal exposing a subject many scriptwriters would shy away from. The characters are brought to life wonderfully by the two actresses, which leaves the audience forgetting it is just a play as they become deeply involved, watching through involuntary tears. A hauntingly beautiful and deeply moving performance, not to be missed.

Just Festival at St John’s, until 23 Aug (not 15-22), 8.30pm.
