Narnia doesn't exist. Lucy’s just realised. She's 26. She’s still reading The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. If the adventures of heroine Lucy Pevensie can’t help, then perhaps C. S. Lewis’s dedication to his god-daughter, Lucy Barfield, holds the key to another wardrobe.

On from 16 Aug 2016 to 04 Sep 2016
Barons Court Theatre
by Marie Hale

Tickets: £7 - £10 - Previews (16-17 August): £5

Marie Hale brings us a double bill of new plays, each concerned with fascinating facets of modern life.

Almost 4 decades after the first woman took office as Prime Minister, and mere weeks after the second took the reigns of power, there's still not nearly enough in the way of well-written roles for women, or enough opportunities for women in the theatre in general. Commendably, this production offers offers two fascinating, well-written female roles, with the majority of the creative roles effected by women. Meg Lake and Brig Bennett both give fine performances, providing us with two very different, contrasting characters and two very different perspectives on women's lives.

There are innovative touches from directors Kasia Wojcicka and Hugh Allison who both make full use of the available space in this intimate venue, spreading the action into almost every nook and cranny, and with Ms Bennett addressing the audience directly – at times, staring right into their eyes from a couple of feet away.

There's a neatly-devised cabaret scene with an invisible, jeering audience and a clever slow-mo segment when Helen attacks a fellow prisoner, Belfast Mary.

Quality pervades this production in every department providing an engaging and stimulating evening of theatre.



IMPRISONED: Two monologues written by Marie Hale and directed by Kasia Różycki and Hugh Allison, are nothing short of astonishing, both in terms of their conceptual basis and the power of their staging.

IMPRISONED is a double bill of monologues, giving two different interpretations of the title word. In SOMETHING FOR THE MEN, set in the 1980s at a time when women were more likely to be the secretary than the boss, Vicky Barwell (played by Meg Lake) is in a dead end job. In YOUR SACRAMENT DIVINE, Helen McPherson (played by Brig Bennett) is a convicted criminal. (Tom Bell – A Younger Theatre)

Maire Hale scripts are well chosen to offer contrasting stories, however, YOUR SACRAMENT DIVINE stood out as a play of exceptional quality and depth. Actress Brig Bennett is outstanding as an inmate losing hope of gaining remission to her prison sentence. She really nails the audience to their seats, as she delivers her lines with vehemence. It’s a gritty, believable and fascinating performance. The director, Hugh Allison makes excellent choices delivering the monologues up close and personal and using the whole space.

The play has suspense, as we have to wait to the end to find out why the protagonist committed the crime, at the same time the traumas are ramping up the pressure into a powder keg; it does not let up until its final satisfactory conclusion. A play with pace and pauses full of tension.

In SOMETHING FOR THE MEN, the 1980s are evoked very well, in the simple office set by Andrea Carr, the costume design and the attitudes of the day. In the monologue we hear about Vicky Barwell’s failed love affairs as she discusses them with a work colleague. She eventually emerges as a stronger woman. Whilst interesting, this linear script lacks sufficient hooks to really grab the attention. It might have worked better as a duologue as several times the protagonist repeats what the other character has said for our benefit which feels a little clumsy.

Overall, a slow start to the evening but it is worth the wait as the evening of contrasting plays, builds to a crescendo.
