Design was the first thing that stood out for me, they made the stage seem spacious while retaining the sense of intimacy where required for scenes in small rooms.
Very funny, very modern dialogue delivered with superb pace by a strong cast(including two CSSD graduates - yay!)

I had known before seeing the play that it would address the issue about the tensions between the African and Caribbean communities. What I didn't know was how much this would prove difficult viewings at times. It was an honest dialouge throughout.
A British born female with Caribbean parents, I was watching the play with my Nigerian Born Partner. It was somewhat ammusing to us that we could so easily place ourselves in the characters of 'Joe' and 'Naomi.'
Concentration throughtout the play is of the upmost importance as dialougue is delivered at lightning speed. The length of the play was adequate enough for the story development although my bottwem did ache a little, probably due to no interval.
I am pleased I went to see the play which delivered a whole lot more then advertised.

what do you do if you got to the cinema and watch a movie? especially as some of them are becoming epic monsters in terms of running time!

I usually have a) a larger seat and b)the option to sit by the aisle! I have a small bladder.
Theatre, I find, requires a different level of concentration from me. Watching a film I feel is more passive, I can sit back and let it wash over me whereas I feel more engaged by a theatrical performance and sometimes enjoy a short break - back to reality as it were.
Back to the play discussion!
