Bucket List (Theatre Ad Infinitum)
By Hannah Greenstreet | Published on Sunday 21 August 2016
“Sometimes it’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s not.” So says main character Milagros, played feelingly by Vicky Araico Casas, at the start of Theatre Ad Infinitum’s new show, ‘Bucket List’. The talented ensemble tells the story of one young woman’s quest for revenge against the corrupt, capitalist regime in Mexico that killed her mother. Physical theatre and live music are expertly used to create the world of the play. It also brings the complex political situation of post-NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) Mexico to the attention of the audience. Although the story requires quite a lot of suspension of disbelief, I was still rooting for Milagros to succeed.
Pleasance Dome, until 29 Aug.
