Results Will Vary

The quartet of performers who make up Pop Heart Productions brought to life a piece of improvisational theatre with several compelling aspects and showed promise for the future.

there's much to recommend this performance of impressive word-play

With a narrative chosen by the audience, each evening of Results Will Vary will end up playing out differently and the key for this improvisational shows will be to maintain a consistently high standard. For this performance, Pop Heart Productions cast members had to devise several skits around the subject matters of ‘shit jobs’ and ‘cliques’ - all chosen by the audience - and the ease in which the actors transitioned from one scene to the next brought about a slick routine with an added plethora of improvisation techniques. It was the performers mix of concrete and increasingly abstract scenes that kept the audience entertained throughout although the fluidity with which the production ran was halted at times by the occasional break in character as well as laughter from actors off-stage.

In spite of this, there's much to recommend in this performance of impressive word-play. Not only did this evening of eclectic episodes humorously teach me the sensuousness of shallots and the emotional layers of onions, it also showed the potential that this theatre company has for the future. Though still rough round the edges, there's plenty to come from Pop Heart Productions.

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.
