The immediate and consistent invitation to the environment as presented. With very little fanfare, the crew was able to provide a space in which suspension of disbelief was effortless, despite the paranormal themes.The actors within the performance space were engaged and responsive the entire time spent with them. The “game play”, as such, was so unique, that it left me still questioning my choices the day after the performance. The audience instructions were laid out in such a creative way that lent itself to the overall theme and plot.
What I didn't like
The brevity? Ot was it just long enough? Probably the latter, actually. It’s a remarkable feat when a production team can elicit such an effective emotional response within such a limited period of time.
My overall impression
A swift and effective immersion into the underworld and back.
A devised adaptation of a Greek classic about corruption, weakness & power; a hilarious tale of a highly-trained marksman/history teacher; and a heartwarming comedy about an overbearing stage mother and her hapless son attempting to stage a comeback
