Tits & Blood (2 stars)

Pity this troupe of young American performers. As am-dram groups go they’re not terrible. But filmmaker/playwright Neil Labute’s latest piece of theatre is. Purportedly a demolition of theatre’s ‘fourth wall’ (the imaginary one that separates the actors from the audience), Tits & Blood comprises two unrelated scenes in which characters converse with the crowd in clever-arse ironic fashion. Thing is, dramatists were doing this stuff back in the golden age of the Globe theatre. It doesn’t help the play’s case that it’s loaded with Labute’s dodgy - and long since dull - brand of misanthropy and misogyny. (Miles Fielder)
