Starting off in an interview room, we see Francine and Marla grilling Belinda who is hopeful to become the pair’s new apprentice. See, this is an interview for a hazardous waste company, in that, they dispose of bodies found in bin bags. In this very witty and surreal dark comedy written by Cat Kolubayev, I doubt you will find a more original play than this at the Vaults this year.
All three actresses performing give truly fantastic performances. Adeline Waby is incredible as Francine, really toeing the line between being stern and being open. She also has really strong stage presence, she pretty much commands it every time she’s in focus. Madison Clare delivers the funniest lines as Marla with a zing and Helena Antoniou brings a lot of heart to the table in her characterisation of Belinda.
Overall, I pleasantly enjoyed this. My only grip with the play is that the ending felt very abrupt and I couldn’t work out why it decided to end that way. However, I do hope this play has a further life outside The Vaults after it’s run.
Until next time,
