Broken Windows (Piú Theatre)

Broken Windows

‘Broken Windows’ is based on verbatim interviews with teenage girls, and it paints a vivid picture of how those girls differ while growing up. Writers Caitlin Ince and Matthew White are a match made in theatrical nirvana: White’s prolific musicianship combined with Ince’s assertive acting ability are certainly a pleasure to watch. The overall message is that all girls are different and have varying degrees of confidence, insecurity and even naivety – though it’s stressed that being naïve is not recommended. It’s certainly thought-provoking, and has all the early fundamentals of being an extremely powerful show, but the poignant moments are not frequent enough. Some further development could create something really special here.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 31 Aug.
