ED2012 Theatre Review: Cubicle Four (Between The Bars)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Theatre Reviews

A short play set in one cubicle of an Accident and Emergency department, ‘Cubicle Four’ gives a glimpse into the lives of the cubicle’s different inhabitants over a 24-hour period. This includes a grandmother and grandson, two brothers and a husband and wife, each brought into hospital unexpectedly and all dealing with it in different ways. It packs a powerful emotional punch and every character has something we can sympathise with, each having a distressing back story to unfold as they converse. The acting is powerful and extremely convincing and raises questions about how we in the audience would handle similar situations. A thought-provoking play focused on how life can change in one short moment.

Paradise in the Vault, 4-27 Aug (not 13, 20), 4.14pm.
