Muddled yet ambitious little play
This article is from 2010.
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.
