Jesus, Jane, Mother & Me (Lawrence Batley Theatre With KETCHUP Productions And Richard Jordan Productions)

By | Published on Tuesday 23 August 2022

Well, this was unnerving. Daniel tells the audience about his favourite things, from his early years to the present day. And what starts as an upbeat tale featuring an odd character turns into a gripping, edge-of-seat story. The script is cleverly written, with surprises, dark humour and a captivating narrative. Its central, difficult character is brought skilfully to life, provoking disquiet throughout as we are slowly made aware of his true personality. Light and sound are used incredibly well to create and enhance the mood and comedic elements, and to help immerse the audience, which really just shows that the entire team behind this production were instrumental in creating something pretty much perfect; an unforgettable play.

Pleasance Dome, until 29 Aug.
