THEATRE sHE’s dEAd of couRsE tHe Vault (Venue 29) HHHHH
THERE’S an interesting statement on the drugs industry at the centre of this absurdist drama that sees an elderly grandmother swallow a fly and then a host of other animals, as per the song, only in this instance following the orders of a “doctor”. The cast are great singers and harmonise extracts of the ditty well, but the story is too obviously a device for putting across a thematic point. The characters feel underdeveloped as a result and, since we all know the story so well, the journey towards the inevitable ending lacks suspense.
Until 30 August. Today, 7:35pm
