ED2012 Theatre Review: Thinking Of You (Knot Theory)

By | Published on Monday 20 August 2012

A dynamic story of four broken lives: the lonely Woman, frustrated Man, terrified Girl and drunken Boy. This free Fringe play has a clever way of keeping the audience entranced, weaving between past and present, reality and fantasy worlds. It was too simple at times, missing out points in the narrative I for one would have liked to have known, such as the age of the girl. Each character has his or her own story to tell and this edgy, dark comedy resonated a little with everyone. Whether it be the image of the fractured family, or the individual stories themselves; the universal themes of loneliness, frustration and wanting one’s voice to be heard in volatile times, the audience understands.

Laughing Horse @ Phoenix Bar, 2-26 Aug, (not 6, 13, 20), 4.30pm
