Camden Fringe: Pause, Collection Theatre, Lord Stanley

Part of the Camden Fringe 2013by Serena Haywood Directed by Tutku Barbaros★★★★ Pros: Wonderfully tense. An incredibly sad subject matter tackled bravely and performed extremely well. Cons: The characters’ monologues tended to drag in many parts. Some aspects didn’t really bring anything to the production and could be trimmed.

Camden Fringe: Bitter Water, Collection Theatre

Part of the Camden Fringe 2013 Steve FitzgeraldDirected by Paul Edward Linghorn ★★★ Pros: Atmospheric, unnerving, good use of sound and light. Cons: The internal logic behind certain elements isn’t always consistent. Our Verdict: Enigmatic piece that takes a walk on the dark side. Courtesy of Pandamonium Performance Bitter Water is a play that wears its influences openly – German Expressionism, David Lynch and Stanley Kubrick – and unapologetic in its non-naturalistic style.
