The Paradise Project (Northern Stage at Summer Hall, Monday, August 10th 2015) ***
I didn’t really follow what this piece was about, and what the point of it was. It seemed like it was about two people in some kind of secluded building making recordings and agreeing how they would live together. There were dialogues about how much water they would drink and how it would be shared. Others around whether they would have sex together. As we watched they made furniture together, and at points constructed the set around them.
Though overall the acting was enjoyable, to get the most out of this piece, I think that I needed more of a back story to help me follow what was happening.
My verdict ***
