ED2012 Physical Review: Undercovered (RHUL Drama Society)

By | Published on Friday 10 August 2012

‘Undercovered’ follows the story Mark Stone, alias Mark Kennedy, who worked undercover for several years exposing the plans of radical environmentalists. The show impressively outlines this complex, political affair without bias or moral judgement, leaving the audience to decide for themselves how they feel about the distressing sequence of events. There are long interludes of uninspiring physical theatre which fail to add anything to the narrative, but clearly evidence the ensemble approach the young company have taken in creating their piece. The projections on the back-wall of the stage add a much-needed clarity, the highlight being a bird’s eye view of a hospital bed, which Kennedy stands in front of after being badly beaten. Ambitious, if not entirely successful.

theSpace on North Bridge, 4-11 Aug (not 5), 4.40pm.
