Audience: Ian Masters
With spare but effective staging placing the audience on the other side of the mirror in the powder room, the five vignettes we powerfully written in a corporate setting which revealed a lot more than office politics tackling deep issues. A mother dealing with an insensitive school bureaucracy in defense of her child, a stunning transsexual confronting the bigotry of the religious right and the heart wrenching defiance of a woman without friends facing a death sentence from cancer alone were moving and memorable. The only less convincing tale from the powder room was about the angst over a pregnancy test which was over-acted but again like all the vignettes beautifully written and cleverly staged. Bravo to all.
