This Is Not Culturally Significant (Out Of Spite Theatre)
By Penelope Hervouet | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2016
Raw, crude, harrowing – ‘This Is Not Culturally Significant’ shows it all. This original one-man play by Adam Scott-Rowley confronts us with the madness of reality we often choose to ignore. In short and extreme snippets, it explores breaking point moments in the lives of twelve different characters, their stories intertwining and complementing each other in this brilliantly deconstructed narrative. With a truly Beckettian feel to it, this piece unites the comic and the tragic, the real and the absurd, with a remarkable intensity. Scott-Rowley’s performance shows real versatility as he oscillates between drastically different characters – his acting is passionate, organic and simply captivating throughout. A gripping piece, and a brilliant showcase for this creative talent.
Pleasance Forth, until 29 Aug.
