Sins Of Seven Tables (The New Salisbury Players)

By | Published on Friday 8 August 2014

This new play from Tom Anderson examines what would happen if it were tables, rather than walls, which had ears. Unfortunately, the actual table used throughout this piece seemed to serve no other purpose than to give the actors something to lean on. The actors were committed to their roles and seemed to enjoy the piece, but the direction made no sense in relation to their location nobody gets up in the middle of dinner to take a casual stroll around the bistro! The lines were garbled and breathy, and there were moments where the acting could only be described as melodramatic hysteria. Overall, a baffling and un-engaging exploration of a well-known metaphor.

Greenside @ Royal Terrace, until 23 Aug.
