Quality Control

Muddled yet ambitious little play

This ambitious little play attempts to tackle too many issues: self esteem, adultery, closeted homosexuality and, oddly, corporate box-ticking attitudes to multiculturalism. Oh, and it has a violent life-sized crayon. It all ultimately comes out in a bit of a muddle. There are some great storytelling devices, and at times the language is beautiful, but it badly needs a dramaturg or experienced director to create consistency across the writing and the performances.

How in control of ourselves are we? How much easier is it to let someone else worry for us? In this big busy bankrupt world, how easy is it, really, to just get on with it all? Especially when a 7ft talking crayon is trying to cut off your fingers... Scottish collective proudExposure presents a new poetic black comedy.
