ED2012 Theatre Review: Forever Young (Red Cloak Productions)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Theatre Reviews

It is with energy and talent that this young cast tumbles headfirst through scenes of love and idealistic aspirations, creating a montage of a couple’s memories, looking back on their relationship. The narrative flow is dynamic, and the nostalgia of building dens and watching horror films in the dark gets warm smiles from the audience. In particular, a scene in which the young couple guess film themes played on the ukulele is sweet and humorous. A live soundtrack performed by musicians around the stage features covers of The Kinks, The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix, and songs work well within the narrative. This looks like it was great fun to perform – it’s certainly fun to watch.
