That Moment (Blueleaf Theatre Company)

By | Published on Friday 11 August 2017

Alicia Harding is looking for her big break, but every time she thinks she’s about to get it something goes wrong. Whether it’s getting stuck with a jam doughnut-eating smelly dog, or with a hopeless fling from drama school, life is just not going the way she’d planned. Written by Dougie Blaxland and directed by Marcus Marsh, this one woman show is an exciting piece of new writing about the age-old problem of the struggling actor. Actor Madeleine Gray is captivating: her performance exudes energy and hilarity from the moment the audience enters. The simple staging allows her to shine, whilst still keeping an air of intimacy. Hilariously funny and superbly acted, this is one not to be missed.

C cubed, until 28 Aug.
