Allie (Gilded Balloon, August 2015) *****

Ruaraidh Murray plays Bobby and Megan Shanley plays Allie in this beautifully written complex narrative played as a narrative. Bobby is frightening and threatening. Allie finds herself in an abusive relationship with him. What should have been a love story ends up as a story of violence and revenge.

It’s one of those productions that is hard to review because the twists and turns that build on each other to the finale. No line is a throwaway. You’ve got to listen carefully, because what you are being told will have consequences.

The performances were excellent. On the day I went the sound did not work, but it didn’t make any difference to my enjoyment of the drama.
