SingleMarriedGirl (Heather Bagnall In Association With Tasty Monster Productions)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2013

This extremely light comedy about one married woman finally making steps towards self-discovery and a social life is occasionally amusing and certainly motivational. However, fumbled lines and awkward scene changes (a monologue with scene changes, I ask?) makes it stilted, and a little unbelievable. Meanwhile the script is brimming with cheesiness, and seriously, ‘chagrinned’? Do people ever say that? It sounds like Stephanie Meyer minus the vampires. In fact, minus any drama at all, with things only threatening to go ever so slightly wrong, and never even managing that. Perhaps it’s a positive celebration of the pointlessness of human life. But I found it hard to make myself care about the themes of fashion choices, family history and Facebook.

theSpace on North Bridge, until 24 Aug (not 11, 18), 8.00pm.
