Gari Jones has directed a strong interpretation of a very difficult play. The relationship between Angie and Joyce is roundly developed to ease the audience through the complexities set by the chronological displacement of the text. I particularly enjoyed Gina Isaac's layering in her portrayal of Marlene and the excellent rotating set which worked highly successfully in the office scenes. Well done Colchester's Mercury Theatre for daring to put on such a difficult production in a time of austerity when it must be more tempting to 'play it safe' with a handful of popular crowd pullers. This is an iconic classic that is not necessarily performed for your enjoyment but to make you get far more from your ticket price - the ability to leave the theatre still processing what you have just seen! Well done. - Ms A Morgan
