Suffering in Baghdad

Richard Walker’s one-man, two character, show begins with Simon, a war correspondent, sharing his views on war and the suffering he has seen in Baghdad. No amount of Scotch can make up for the never-ending ‘racket’. The second half looks at free spirit Kenny, who has a more fantastical view of the world. As their connection unravels you begin to question your own views. Competently delivered, it’s unfortunate that this piece has nothing new to offer on the subject. (Greer Ogston)
