ED2012 Theatre Review: B O X (Ninesidedbox)

By | Published on Tuesday 7 August 2012

B O X is a play about two highly-strung women, confined to their apartment by fears of the outside world, who receive mysterious red boxes. The dialogue is suitably tense between the two main characters, though the constant bickering is sometimes overwhelming; fortunately, Adriana Colón and Margaret Kerr are both endearing in their roles, whilst the staging and costumes demonstrate excellent attention to detail. The predominantly red, white and blue design and the characters’ obsession with health and beauty regimes suggests that there may be an interesting commentary on Western womanhood somewhere within this unusual piece, yet it is certainly not emphasised. A play about security: how comfortable would you feel stepping out of your routine?

C nova, 2 – 26 Aug, 12.00pm.
