According To His Need (Reds Theatre Company)

By | Published on Wednesday 6 August 2014

One guy, one girl and a whiteboard: those are all that Reds Theatre Company need to show you the complex relationship between politics and sex. The quirky romance is played out by Michael-David McKernan and Hannah Tucker Mamalis, both performing with real energy and charisma, though it would have been interesting to see them interact even more with their audience. Oliver Eagleton’s intelligent script makes this piece an intellectual challenge as well as a very charming story, but there are some moments when the dialogue is so quick-fire that it can be hard to understand. If you can keep up with the characters’ agendas, you will find this an unusual, smart and touching story.

C nova, until 25 Aug.
