ED2012 Theatre Review: 25 – 13 Red, 12 Blue (Middle Child Theatre)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Theatre Reviews

“What can you change when you wake up in the morning? Your hair!?” A crude and factual observation of common hardship and young people’s difficult lives and desolate expectations in a contemporary British city: Hull. Voted the UK’s worst city to live in – twice. And because it’s so cheap to live there, people on benefits need less to live on, right? Conservative, Labour, LibDem – what difference does it make? Red, blue – what can you do? Adapt, and struggle, work two jobs to live, fit in, put up with it. Honestly acted, sharply written, simply put to stage! You might recognise yourself in it, or your friends, or the guy who works at your chippy.“You can change everything!” Really?

C aquila, 2 – 27 Aug (not 13), 4.20pm.
