At times there were random bursts of aromas that didn't seem to link with the narrative, e.g. TCP a couple of times.
But the second half-hour was repetitive, I felt I'd got it by then, and because the play was a slice-of-life piece rather than a story there was nothing new to drive it along. But it was a good experience and for £6, worth it.
As I left I was amused by the sight of a blindfolded couple still sitting to attention, while everyone left. Perhaps they thought they had to be led back out of the auditorium as well. They might still be there now.
Heh heh heh, look at this forum. For most of the last 2 weeks, it's been mainly me talking to myself. This board really is all about West End/NT/Almeida/Royal Court plays and musicals isn't it. At least in terms of active posters anyway. This forum is where I come to be alone!

It's interesting though, there are so many fringe venues all over the Greater London area and its surrounding districts, all of us must be near at least one or two of them, they're usually very cheap, often have quirky or unusual work going on, but it doesn't seem to draw many of us on this board.

I think this board's problem is circular - a lot of people wanting to talk about fringe know there's not much traffic here, so post it in play or musical as appropriate, so the traffic never increases. Don't know how you could fix it though, short of mods moving all threads as appropriate.

Really starting to love going to the SP, I'm booking into almost all their productions now - they still have their 'airline pricing' system which means the further ahead you book the cheaper it is - usually £8/12/16 or £10/15/20 depending on the production. I like their gloomy bar with its care-worn couches and I'm exploring more of the local area each time and growing to like it more.

Having moved to this venue not very long ago, they're faced with almost certainly having to move again due to extensive redevelopment of London Bridge station and many of the properties adjoining it.
