Caviar & Chips

Reading the press release for Caviar & Chips, you'd be forgiven for thinking this was some deep polemic drama. The leaflet blurb leaves you with the impression it's all about girls on top. The photo implies we're dealing with Dadaism here. To be honest, much as us reviewers like to pigeon-hole shows, it's not that straightforward with Caviar & Chips.

Three girls go on a journey to get out of London, and in the process they explore their own lives through a series of skilfully-played flashbacks. This may sound heavy, but in reality the format is almost sketch show, with fast paced comic routines perforating the linear narrative of Danni, Erica and Michelle's lives. It's a slick production, excellently written and performed. If I had one niggle, it would be the abrupt ending, and the slight feeling that this journey with the girls hadn't taken me anywhere.
