Excellent!

There were some school parties in and some students had obviously taken advantage of the venue being the art-house theatre in the university grounds. "I hope they're not too noisy - I want to hear the music" I thought to myself. My heart sank a bit when a group of ~20 year olds came and sat right behind me and were noisy before it started. I needn't have worried - the only noise I heard from them was when a big, hairy lad got so carried away with the emotion that he started sobbing near the end - and actually had to dash out in the final minute!

Technically, this is a four-hander, but the deceptively simple set and the excellent soundtrack (by John Foxx and Benge) make it more like six actors on stage. The music sets the scene from the breath-like entry to a more generally atmospheric background, yet hits peaks and crescendos at dramatic points to give the actors something to respond to.

Well worth 1 hour 25 minutes of anyone's time. Check it out if you can:

Great video interview with John Foxx:

It's chronological, so you can watch just the bits of his life/career that interest you.

Lucky Aussies!
