SPEECH AND DEBATE (play)
NOT SUITABLE FOR THOSE AGED UNDER 14.
Ends 1st April 2017.
Unpopular American High School students Solomon, Diwata and Howie are brought
together by a class scandal. Can their "Speech and Debate" team get "The
Crucible" (in dance form) ready in time?
Defibrillator present the UK premiere of a comedy by Stephen Karam.
Professional reviewers are unanimous in praise of the cast,
particularly the comedic skills of Patsy Ferran - but then, any
regular theatregoer knows that. The problem is the script. For a few
reviewers, they are willing to accept that the piece is a
discussion, not a conclusion about the hypocrisy of adult scandal.
Most, though, find the journey amusing enough - Ferran's music in
particular - but are left dissatisfied by the lack of narrative
threads drawing together, not to mention the rather dated feel of
the technology the students employ in the 2008 writing.
to see a much-admired author's early work, and acted outstandingly
well, seems to be the verdict.
