A Play, a Pie and a Pint,
Oran Mor, Glasgow
27th Feb to 4th March
Script: Stagecraft: Performance:
World Domination is a meandering vision of a broken family, anchored upon a suburban dominatrix dungeon. The madame of the crypt is played by Louise Ludgate, who at first rejects the return of her errant sister, Hannah Donaldson. What follows is a gradual shifting of the spheres as the-at-first stoic dominatrix begins to crumble, while the once-flakey, ketamine-bombing sister begins to ‘dominate’ proceedings, in the most gentlest of ways that is.
The two actresses bob along with an unstrained & effortless chemistry, & the script stands up to scrutiny. This is playwright Lesley Heart’s fifth A Play, A Pie and A Pint staged, & it’s a moving, snapshot of the mediocratic malaise which effects modernity. I particularly liked the script at:
- : This is my dungeon, my place of work
- : Its quite a change from human resources
- : No I don’t think it is
An excellent addition to this season’s PPP, especially if you like your theatre clad in lycra & your scenes divided by hard-core German Techno.
