Are You There?

Above-average student drama

A dingy apartment is the setting for this paranormal tale of a fraught couple’s enforced cohabitation with a sinister presence. Adapter/director Charlie Ward has done a cracking job with Javier Daulte’s original work and the young cast of two rise admirably to the challenge of the by-turns frightening, comic and sad narrative of grief, loss and the realities of human love. Some questions are left unanswered, and there are occasional swerves into histrionics, but overall a fine example of above-average student drama.
