ED2012 Theatre Review: Request Programme (Cecilia Nilsson SIRIS Original Theatre)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Theatre Reviews

‘Request Programme’ is a one woman show in which the audience sit around Miss Rasch’s living room and watch her carry out her evening activities, all of which are ordinary; there is no dialogue, and other than the radio show ‘Request Programme’, there is complete silence: as I settled into my uncomfortable stool, and realised what I was in for, my heart sank. However, within 10 minutes I was engrossed. ‘Request Programme’ is a complex and challenging piece of theatre that ultimately offers a sensitive and deeply moving portrait of a lonely woman, giving its audience an intimate look into the mind of a lost soul. The result is haunting, and the experience is unforgettable.

Inlingua Edinburgh, 4-19 Aug (not 6, 13), 7.30pm.
