The Episode at The Wardrobe Theatre, Review, Jossie Sutton, Theatre Magic
Jay (the model’s “fairy godmother”) is played beautifully by Lolade Rufai- she captivates the audience in every way again, someone who has found themselves captivated by beauty, marvelling in how deep beauty can go beyond the skin and bones. And yet, always considering the angle, how best to package the season’s tragedy, how to sell it all.
Review: Homestead, Tristan Bates Theatre
Steven Dykes’s direction encapsulates the importance of this play. The juxtaposition between the comedy and childishness of the daughters, and the impending and foreboding religious ideas, creates a forceful atmosphere highlighting the jealousy and desire that exists in the bodies of the domestic home. What makes Lorca’s work and this adaptation so familiar is the relationship between the siblings. The endless bickering and raging jealousy seem all too recognisable, but with a clear tenderness towards each other, the outcome of the play is even more devastating that we can imagine. Dykes’s cast work well to capture the relationship of these imprisoned siblings. Roisin Brehony and Georgia Maskery, as Amy Lynn and Mary Beth, each independently dream of escape in their own way, one through innocence and another through knowledge. Abigail Castleton plays the snobbish and unknowingly immature Agnes, the good girl of the group who is the only one that I feel there is no future for other than marrying a husband. Katie Glaister and Isobella Hubbard stand out as the juxtaposing Adele and Mara Lee. From Glaister’s domineering and rebellious presence to the secrecy of Hubbard, this twosome creates an intense and interesting final scene. Lolade Rufai and Sophie Doherty are not to be forgotten as Clarice and Birdie though – two star figures who truly stand out. They round up everything Lillian is missing as a mother and provide a sense of home and comfort to the experience of turmoil.
