Wrecked (Fever Dream)
By Penelope Hervouet | Published on Saturday 27 August 2016
A unique performance in which audience and stage blend into one. Only six audience members at a time join Sam in her car, moments after a crash. Sitting in the vehicle with her, they embark on a dark, metaphorical journey as she desperately tries to collect her thoughts. Progressively, chaotically, her memories come back – her father’s illness, her troubled friendship with Lizzie – everything until the crash. ‘Wrecked’ is an immersive, intimate experience with a highly emotionally charged narrative. The closeness to the performer effectively annihilates the fourth wall, heightening the intensity of Sam’s story. A very good theatrical experience, mostly due to the distinctive setting.
Assembly George Square Gardens, until 29 Aug.
