The Heidi Chronicles Shines, Nothing Disappoints
The quality of the works.
The Heidi Chronicles was simply sensational: funny, pointed, insightful, perfectly cast and refreshingly balanced.
The Young Man From Atlanta perhaps lacks suspense, but makes up for it in brilliantly fashion, subtly discussing social and sexual attitudes by not actually having them discussed (it makes sense when you hear the play trust me).
Anna Christie was an enjoyable romp, not a life changer, but a great way to spend and hour.
For The Heidi Chronicles it was the sheer believability. The characters have their extremes and the troupes of each era/character type are explored, but in an intelligent and ultimately moving fashion. You'll feel like you've have known the characters for 20 years by the play's conclusion, and you'll be saddened to leave their company. Incisive but affectionate, a study of women in the Baby Boomer generation that's flexible mixing feminism, comedy and realism, without having any one element undermine the others. Strangely heart breaking, and utterly brilliant.
The Young Man From Atlanta is all about what goes unsaid. You get to fill the judgemental emotional void, and drawing your own conclusions is essential to this play's success.
Anna Christie a breeze.
Great value for money.
