Yellow Pears (Swept Up Theatre)

By | Published on Sunday 11 August 2013

Futile and without fervour, this poorly devised show lacked even the bare basics of theatre. Without a plot, it bumbles on without any sense of direction or point. It’s supposed to be about the friendship between two people, but there’s no real action and characters appear two-dimensional, lacking even a hint of development. Described as a “physical comedy”, about two unconventional stall sellers with “seriously good dance moves”, the only laughs it received were at the cringe-worthy moments of uninspiring dance. I’m struggling to find any redeeming features in this production; I suppose the acting wasn’t bad, but that’s not nearly enough to give some significance to this rather pointless production.

Zoo, until 26 Aug (not 12), 3.00pm.
