Loving Dick (Leading Van Productions / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Thursday 8 August 2013

Leading Van productions present their audience with a comedy about everyday relationships, from three very different perspectives: Connor, the teacher with no drive; Lana, the feisty European; and Max, the lad’s lad assistant to Connor. Divided into very aesthetically pleasing chapters, the show follows the individual trysts and trials of the characters, until they are unwittingly forced to merge. In a funny and captivating production, the question asked is what is sex, actually, and what is its purpose? They offer the idea that sex is many different things to many different people, and demonstrate how wrong it can go when two people can’t see eye to eye. A very undemanding show, with a lot of audience appeal.

The Fiddler’s Elbow, until 24 Aug (not 13), 9.30pm.
