Tender Napalm (Tour - Newcastle)
There are some wonderful moments in this play although I did feel that the male character was over written, leaving the female character floundering at times.
The two performances are spectacular and as hard as the audience applauded, there was no curtain call. Lara Rossi moves around the stage with cat like precision, her performance beautifully judged, while Tom Byam Shaw plays at such a pace; with such passion, energy and control that I was exhausted just watching him. The play is in Traverse, and that is what works with this play, because we are forced to confront each other as audience members, questioning each other, ourselves and how we will treat each other in our lives. Before we utterly destroy each other.
