By Ferdinand Bruckner in a new version by Martin Crimp. The Artisan Collective. Director: Ben Pfeiffer. The Malthouse Theatre (Vic). September 9 – 24, 2011.
This is a curious, intriguing, engaging and well produced work that ‘showcases’ a beautiful, spirited and talented group of young actors.
In a drawing room with an atmosphere of decadence and display, combinations of young, self serving individuals work through their intimate relationships and close friendships, play with their personal power and indulge their neuroses.
