ED2012 Theatre Review: Nothing Is Really Difficult (Theatergroep WAK)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Theatre Reviews

When three Dutch guys wearing shorts and braces start dad-dancing in the street to bring in the crowds, you know you’re onto a winner. Nothing is Really Difficult takes place inside a life-size wooden box but the performers are nowhere to be seen. One by one, they emerge from all corners, in all manner of entrances. Loud bangs, blackouts – the phrase “expect the unexpected” has never been more applicable. This laugh out loud, grotesquely funny production will have you on the edge of your seat. Just as well that it takes place in a box – if you gave these guys a stage, goodness knows what they’d do to it.

Assembly George Square, Aug 2-6, 8-12, 15-19, 22-26, times vary.
