Theatre review: Living the Dream

Under the imperious command of two shrieking harlequins, six Pierrot-style clowns perform a series of vignettes themed around '˜living the dream'.

Star rating: *

Venue: C Nova (Venue 145)

Whether that dream be the perfect marriage, material bliss, escaping boredom or the potential benefits of becoming a bear. A disjointed absurdist performance with a few good ideas and fewer laughs, it’s for devotees of commedia dell’arte only. The costumes and makeup are nice, at least.
