Fingertips (In The Attic)
By Andy Leask | Published on Sunday 14 August 2016
There is much to admire in this frank and fairly honest look at the state of modern ‘romance’. There’s a focus on the social, emotional and psychological impact of Tinder and other social media on relationships between men and women. The dialogue and performances fair sizzle with authenticity – not to mention the best ‘drunk acting’ I’ve ever seen – and there’s a pleasantly natural air to most of the conversations, one overly engineered argument notwithstanding. There are a lot of genuine laughs from the questions, confessions and accusations that flit back and forth between the six twenty-somethings on stage, but the end left me unsatisfied, craving something more meaningful. Though that could be a clever meta-commentary on modern relationships, I suppose?
C Nova, until 29 Aug.
