Belt Up Theatre’s Outland (Belt Up Theatre and Jethro Compton Ltd)

By | Published on Thursday 9 August 2012

Watching this show while imprisoned in a small, cushy room with three characters who showed varying degrees of madness, I found myself in a strange position – most of the time I had no idea what was going on, but I was still enjoying it immensely. Belt Up Theatre explores Lewis Carroll’s fantasy lands, characters and stories in an exciting yet intense manner, with all three actors changing roles so quickly the audience have to concentrate hard to keep up. Despite this the acting is flawless, and audience members are welcome – indeed forced – to join in, with actors jumping among them and dragging them centre stage. If it’s your kind of thing, it’s spectacular. If not, you’ll probably feel a bit awkward.
