Anthropoligical
27 June 2020 | by edgeofrealitySee all my reviews

Approached as a study in Australian anthropology this starts to get funny. It's very cheapness adds to the sense of authenticity and even brings it close to the horror genre. Like a true comedy it ends with the successful consummation of the wedding and good old life going on. The Brit leaves town a wiser man. One imagines the play would have been more immersive, hence no need for the English reporter there. Some may not be amused, but you had to be there.
