ED2012 Theatre Review: The List (Stellar Quines)

By | Published on Friday 17 August 2012

It’s easy to forget that this show is comprised of one monologue. ‘The List’ is about a housewife that habitually pens down all of her duties on a to-do list. Poignantly capturing her immersion into isolated, rural domesticity, this production is engaging from the very outset. Sensational acting commands the audience to hang on to every word whilst intermittent interjections of the seemingly unconnected list are as alarming as they are humdrum. A touching glimpse of the effect we can potentially have upon each another, the show invites us to question the power of a pre-determined fate or destiny. This spine-tinglingly good play will leave you deeply moved.

Summerhall, 3-18 (not 12, 13) Aug, 2.00pm.
