Love London Love Culture’s Maddie Cordes paid a visit to the Trafalgar studios to see the transfer of Milly Thomas’ play.
“Enjoy the play about suicide tonight’” my colleagues called after me as I left the office! Well actually I did which was a surprise!
Writer and solo performer Milly Thomas with her third showing of her play (Edinburgh Fringe 2017 and the Soho Theatre February this year) had the whole audience laughing every minute or so at the start with her sharp wit at the absurd situations we all find ourselves in with our circle of family, friends and lovers. Alice, Milly’s character who has killed herself and is now in limbo looking back at the effect of her death on that circle is a twenty something but this production is relatable by all ages.
The intimate space of the studio featuring a minimal set designed by Anna Reid combined with a production by Sara Joyce featuring music and sounds that complemented the words was perfect for this journey Alice took us on for her monologue of 75 minutes.
