Rosie Wilby – Is Monogamy Dead? - One4Review
one4review | On 02, Aug 2013
Rosie Wilby, having experienced a slew of breakups in her social circle, wants to know if monogamy is dead. In her quest to find an answer, she turns to politicians, stats, research and finally the audience.
Rosie is a confident performer, although her speaking-style sometimes lacks fluency. She interacts well with the audience (a difficult audience not withstanding), and the highlight for me was an audience-participation re-enactment of family fortunes. She shares some interesting points from research about relationships, and generates from them some good comedy, but nothing seems as well-developed or explored as it could be. The central theme isn’t perhaps strongly enough adhered to, and this show felt quite roomy.
A good performer in need of material worthy of her.
