Beautiful, funny and completely moving, Really Good Stories’ production of
They work incredibly well as a unit and are as engaging together as they are in their solo moments
The role of Nicholas is shared between four cast members: Alex Pangolas, Chris Whyte, Cris Zaccarini and Olly Massey. Each of them give an equally truthful and well thought-out performance as well as adding individual and personal twists. They work incredibly well as a unit and are as engaging together as they are in their solo moments. Dannie Harris gives an admirably mature performance as Libby and has a natural presence on the stage. Holly Bowling’s Rose is honest and utterly likeable and the rare moments of interaction between her and the four Nicks are some of the most touching moments in the show.
Sarah Branston’s direction is simply genius and doesn’t put a toe out of line. With so many props and bits of set, lots of scenes could easily become messy and frantic, however they all work perfectly and both her and the cast deserve a lot of credit for that. The piece flows exceptionally well and the contrasts between happy and sad moments are smooth and make perfect sense. Tom Attwood’s music is beautiful and is the cherry on top of a truly gorgeous piece of theatre.
