ED2012 Physical Review: The Better Half (fromthegreyhouse:company)

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Physical Reviews

A man, a woman, cardboard boxes and some reluctant helpers: the scene is a familiar one for twenty to thirty-somethings moving in with their other half, and in this show, this is the entry point to explore the ups and downs of relationships. A superb young cast act their socks off in this amusing and touching performance which merges text, dance and physical theatre with aplomb. The actors occupy the entire space, mixing with the audience, on occasion propositioning them to comedic effect, which creates an intimacy and an understanding with the characters. It is a performance which does not try to be challenging, but to be honest, something which is often lacking in relationships.

Greenside, 3-11 Aug, 8.50pm.
