This is the third play i've seen by the Flux Theatre group, it was good, but not as "great" as Dog Act or Ajax in Iraq
Menders is heavily based around "Mending Wall" by Robert Frost, i liked the way they "turn it in upon itself" in the final scene but for me...it just fell together a little too nicely and was telegraphed way in advance.
However this isn't a resaon NOT to go and see this play.
Menders by Flux Theatre is an example of raw acting that we just dont get to see in movies and tv.
The scene with Vivia Font where her wings are cut makes the play worth seeing just for this 3 minutes of acting alone. Vivia is a star, I saw her physically change the power and energy of the entire space, just flipped it on a dime, breaking hearts and evoking deep empathy with her skills. Keep an eye out for her in the future.
They've only got 5 more shows to go so be sure to get tickets today, BTW dont be late for the show....the entry door opens onto the stage...you WILL miss the play :)
