REVIEW: The Big A Trilogy
3:31pm Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in Entertainments
ADDICTION is quite a heavy subject matter for a Friday evening at the theatre.
But playwright Rob Windsor did really well to connect with the audience through The Big A Trilogy.
The script was matter-of-fact and didn’t gloss over the realities of alcohol, drug and adrenaline addiction, and the plays didn’t patronise or preach to the audience.
The first play, Off Her Facebook!, was more engaging than the second two, Damaged Goods and Gridluck, and it was possibly too ambitious to perform all three in one sitting.
The relationships between the characters were mostly believable, with particularly impressive performances from Charlie Greenwood and Mark James.
The best parts of all three plays were when the action was taking place on the stage, rather than explained using images on a big screen.
The screen was only really useful for showing photographs of the family involved in the drama in happier times.
In the breaks between the three plays, the audience members were deep in discussion about the issues covered, which is what playwright Windsor had hoped would happen.
