Tinted (Scripped Up)

By | Published on Sunday 28 August 2022

This is uncomfortably moving: at the peak of the #MeToo movement Laura recounts her past relationship and her life growing up disabled. The staging of the show is minimal, but it is packed with messages and poignant moments that teach the audience about living with a visual impairment, and it’s during these truly hard-hitting passages that the script and its performance really grabs the viewer. However, it feels as though the script loses track during the transitions into different topics or scenes, which meant that on multiple occasions I found myself slightly lost. Yet, the show’s star Charlotte Eyres is incredible, giving a raw, subtle performance that makes the audience truly feel every emotion.

Gilded Balloon Patter Hoose, until 28 Aug.
