Stop, Look, Listen.

A neighborhood boy getting killed at an intersection. A tragedy which will change and shape that neighborhood for years to come. Stop, Look, and Listen explores the effects to every denizen of that small patch of suburbia through a series of interconnected monologues, as if the text were transcripts from crime scene (and eventually social service) investigators. Performed by a four member cast who never feel unnatural, they keep the relative tautness within the writing up even if the audience can’t see them. Oh, did I mention the part of the show being in a non-raked theatre, and the entire cast is sitting in chairs for a good sixty five per cent of the time? If their chairs were even six inches off the ground, I would have cared a lot more, but the inability of anyone behind the front row to see anything and connect with the performers made what should be a compelling hour at the Fringe something you’re just staring at your watch through.

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.

The Blurb

'A street, a road like any other' ...until one day the neighbourhood is forced to learn from its differences, instead of fighting against them. A lost community... one day... a tragedy... what does it mean to be a neighbour?
