"When was the last time you were frightened?" At the heart of Nick Dear's new play is the mystery of other people.
When Josh (Jasper Britton) and Amanda (Frances Tomelty) escape London for a weekend of passion in a remote house, a game of truth serves to chip away at the veneer of civilisation. Layers of logic are there for protection.... what happens when they are gone?
The opening minutes of this drama by Nick Dear are laden with coarse innuendo and full-on sexual references that make for rather unpleasant listening. But then the two characters delivering the lines - Amanda, a middle-aged TV presenter, and Josh, a younger mover-and-shaker at Westminster - are an unpleasant couple, full of greed, ambition, lust and snobbery. On the outside they are tough, savvy, driven people, eager to get on with a weekend of illicit, adulterous sex at a remote cottage in the Welsh countryside. On the inside, though, as we soon find out, they have both buried some very profound fears. As night falls, the drink and drugs kick in, and strange events start to take place. The question is - which of the two of them will lose their mind first? This is an extremely clever look at the madness that so many "ordinary" people draw a veil over being unleashed, and the success of the play boosted by the superb performances of Frances Tomelty and Jasper Britton.
Shaheera Asante looks forward to this weekend's Wychwood Festival at Cheltenham, with music from Finnish band Vartinna, Cuban jazz pianist Omar Sosa and the Warsaw Village Band.
