Compelling performance with uncertain audience-actor dynamic
This young company continue their commitment to fine storytelling in this solo piece documenting the unresolved history of an embittered woman (who may or may not be a famous literary archetype), inviting the audience into her secluded world to hear ‘a piece of marvellous gossip’. The actress gives a compelling performance of fine-tuned malice, but an uncertain audience-actor dynamic and the ultimate irresolution of the tale render this somewhat too opaque.
