ED2012 Theatre Review: Pinch in Love (Deck Theatre Company)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Theatre Reviews

What a joy. Oh these little ones, aren’t they cute? Yes, they fight a bit, sometimes, but, oh, they are just p e r f e c t! Mum, two toddlers and a new baby, in the longest morning ever… Pinch and Seedy are jealous. How could mum dare to bring this object into their home? Why is she not singing them lullabies any more? With a mixture of the innocent wit of Twain’s ‘Diary Of Adam And Eve’, of ‘Family Guy’ Baby Stewie’s brainstorming to overthrow the world, and of ‘Tom and Jerry’-like funny, cruel violence, the two troubled toddlers eventually come round. If you can’t get rid it, you better embrace it. Brain tickling acting, storyline and dialogue.

Paradise in The Vault, 5-27 Aug (not 13, 20), 8.50pm.
