An eight actor absurdist German play from the fifties is how Morris Panych described it. He added music, I assume just to up the absurdist nature. Unfortunately, where we were sitting, at the side in row E, the music did not work. Somehow it was out of balance and never seemed to have any impact. It was just annoying.
The cast was very good, and reading the description of the play, I understood what the author was trying to do. But I am not sure I would have got the message from the play itself, or at least from this production. However, one can always enjoy Fiona Reid, Sheila McCarthy, Michael Ball and Dan Chameroy!
The critics loved this production, I remain unconvinced.
