This Much (Or An Act Of Violence Towards The Institution of Marriage) (MOVING DUST)

By | Published on Tuesday 18 August 2015

This Much

The core of this play’s success lies in three bold performances, with each of the actors baring all – both emotionally and physically – in service of the script. The play explores the often fractious relationships between Gar and two very different men; there are moments of searing honesty, harrowing emotion and genuine hilarity throughout and the script asks a lot of questions about relationships, love and commitment. Unfortunately, it is less interested in answering, or even properly addressing those questions. By the end of the play Gar seems to have learned nothing, yet he manages to get a happy ending that feels unearned. This may be an accurate reflection of life, but dramatically it was a little unsatisfying.

Zoo, until 31 Aug.
