Similar to Rufus Norris's Dr Dee but much easier to make sense of the ideas and what's going on. Even so, I couldn't grasp the identities of the three sisters recurring in the diaspora throughout. An unexpected personal bonus was to find that the chicken hails from my home village. This show succeeded in making me think deeply about roots and diaspora. Some ingredients and courses taste better than others but together they definitely make a feast. Yum yum!

Truly awful..

Terrible acting...even worse accents

Some lamentable choreography...budget set design

You would do well to stay at home and watch "The Help" instead

I really do think Rufus Norris is inept as a director...and he is terrible at concept shows...his recent "opera" staging was widely derided at the ENO

I would be interested to see what other think, but for me there was not a single redeeming feature and the show failed on all levels...I was surprised at some of the kindly review and I did wonder if the critics felt they had to be politically and culturally correct...?

I posted my thoughts in this thread during previews
