Trigger warning: sex. violence
A rushed performance - only 40 minutes in length! Also the performer's energy was very hyper and manic from the start, and combined with the very wordy script and heightened language, it was difficult to stay engaged throughout, even though it was a short piece.
Striking performance as always
Absolutely fantastic show with a brilliant performance by Rob van Vuuren. I had no idea the direction the story would take. I was totally blown away.
I walked out drunk on the words, direction and Rob's performance. It was a privilege to experience this piece and it's plays like this that make me love theatre. Keep doing the beautiful work you do.
Absolutely INCREDIBLE performance by Rob Van Vuuren. We left blown away!!
An incredible performance. The sheer skill required in performing a continuous, energetic monologue for nearly an hour would leave you dumbfounded. Add to that the intensity of the emotional performance and it really is an intense experience. Strongly recommended
Give us more of this
5* Hellishly intense. Physically draining. Loved it.
I enjoyed it, appreciated it and Rob van Vuuren is a great presence. I didn't enjoy the narrative as much as I have enjoyed productions in the past.
A rollercoaster of genius mania; superb!
Brilliant performance. He was there 100% of the time and did not lose us for a second.
