A Man Walks Into A Bar
This is a very unusual script, supposedly about a woman trying to tell us a joke, but eventually becomes a chilling version of a battle of the sexes. It requires nuanced, brave performances to pull it off, and this production delivers. I’ve seen a lot of good shows this year (a lot), but this is one of my favourites. Congratulations to Mel Marginet, Karl Thordarson and the rest of the team that put this show on.
