At the Sans Hotel - One4Review

1 Star


Make no mistake, if you see this production you will think it is either cutting edge avant-garde theatre or pretentious and pointless. There is no structure to what you will see. What you will witness is a collection of jumbled anecdotes, experiences and inaction. The solo performer, Nicola Gunn, could be depicting a nervous breakdown, who knows or indeed cares?

In the Fringe booklet the word ‘hilarious’ is used. Well, there was no sign of hilarity in the audience during the performance I saw and a look of ‘What was that all about?’ from the members of the audience as they left following the most messy ending to a play I have just about ever seen.

Maybe, I am too traditionalist in my thinking of what theatre should be about but this experience did not touch me in any way at all. I will concede she is an accomplished performer and has a stage presence but so have many others in this year’s Fringe.
