That Moment - One4Review
Young actress Jenny Harold takes on around a dozen or so characters in Dougie Blaxland’s solo performance comedy. The central character is Alicia Harding, a struggling young actress/waitress. She recounts the heartaches and the dashed hopes of her career – failed auditions and appearing in a struggling Fringe play. Her private life is not so wonderful either – is Ben a boyfriend or just a good mate?
Jenny Harold does give a sterling performance extracting humour from a script which is in parts thin and the characters she portrays tend to be stereotypes. What is missing is a sense of real drama in Alicia’s situation as a counterpoint to the whimsical humour.
