Theatre Reviews

The old cliché says write what you know. Rob Gee is a psy­chi­atric nurse, so his sto­ry of two friends escap­ing their care home to attend a heavy met­al con­cert has the ring of truth. This is not one of those geezer com­e­dy sketch­es, though. The char­ac­ters are three-dimen­sion­al and the play has a lot of heart. We get to know and love the two men in their quest to escape not just their restric­tive, hum­drum home, but their lone­li­ness and fears for the future.

I loved the script; it could be very use­ful as a teach­ing tool for play struc­ture. The per­for­mances, as one would expect from these two, are great. This pro­duc­tion is scream­ing­ly fun­ny, but with just the right sea­son­ing of com­pas­sion and dra­mat­ic ten­sion. I sus­pect it will sell out every night, so you’d be well advised to book in advance.
