A Fine Line

A love letter that’s also a goodbye, this is the story of a love that lasted decades, but a love that had to be kept silent in polite society. Actor Judith Paris is competent and understated in this one-woman show, but is let down by a meandering, rather trite script. We learn about the woman’s life – births, deaths and marriages – and are introduced to the other characters, using the lazy device of representing each one with a piece of clothing. The foreshadowing, however, is thoroughly heavy-handed – you’ll see every plot point coming from a mile away, so there’s no emotional engagement with the more poignant moments. This is a nice story, poorly told.

Assembly Hall, until 31 Aug.
