My favourite things at age eighteen: theatre, environmentalism and satire. So obviously Kill Climate Deniers instantly become a must-see for me. I was super keen to be handed a ‘how to defeat climate change’ handbook, and go on to save the world. Even though I left the theatre without a definitive answer of how to assure the planet’s survival, what I did leave with was way more powerful.
"I’ve always liked the idea of the theatre. The smell of the grease, the roar of the paint. I’ve often thought if I hadn’t ended up in computers, I would've gone into the theatre.” As Moss from the IT crowd tells us, live performances are certainly an entertaining attraction. So, needless to say, I was very excited on seeing Irish variety show RIOT, albeit in a Spiegeltent. With the promise of live music; exciting camp retro visuals; and a lil' sprinkle of the obscene, it seemed like the perfect live performance for me...
It’s not about Three Sisters, it’s about one person and that’s you.
Before I say anything I need to really heavily disclaim one thing: I had never heard of Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov before seeing this STC rendition of it. Oops. So although it’s a classic I have absolutely no knowledge of the form it originally took - I know, that’s super classy of me. A bit embarrassing, but it’s not my fault they don’t teach us about international art in school!
