Cartography (The Lincoln Company)

By | Published on Thursday 13 August 2015


Quirky, cute and low-key, ‘Cartography’ offers us a look inside the mind of Sarah, a young woman battling with the loss of her father and the threat of her own premature death from the same heart condition that killed him. The play’s intimate cast encourages a high level of audience participation, cleverly establishing an emotional involvement with what’s taking place on stage. However, this element of the show, coupled with the occasional musical interludes, can make it feel as if too much is going on at one time. The theme of maps, travelling and cartography highlight the real message of the play; that we all have the power to make our own paths.

C Nova, until 31 Aug.
