The chaos of a house move.

hints at the darknesses beneath

The upending of a divorce.

The claustrophobia of an obsessive relationship.

The feeling that something is not-quite-right.

One woman trying to make sense of it all.

Unfortunately, the woman desperately attempting to separate dull fact from dodgy fantasy is our unreliable narrator… and possible / probable antagonist. So if it’s answers you’re after, you’ve come to the wrong place. Writer and performer Nia Williams deploys a poetic knack for helping the audience visualise the frantic, whirling colours of her character’s fixations, and layers her writing with clues as to the deep-seated unhappiness and emotional frailty which drives the superficially so-far-so-ordinary plot yet hints at the darknesses beneath. This familiarity of her environs and situation help feed our growing unease: are we dealing with good, old-fashioned neediness or something more sinister? We never quite find out, but put it this way: if I were her nearest and cringe-makingly dearest, I’d be sleeping with one eye open.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
