There is a room somewhere nowhere, a room with soft walls and bare lightbulbs. No windows, just one door and lots of random wooden chairs. Once inside, there is no reality other than Saskia, her slide projector and her whims with the rheostat.

 The audience hears Saskia's story told with calculated uncertainty. Saskia, aka Emma Beech, tells of brief encounters in her travels, moments in her life. It is soon clear that Saskia is highly dysfunctional and she just gets odder in her trail of rambling segues.

 The show is 45 minutes trapped voluntarily in a soft-sided room with Saskia's fragmented memories - yet the experience is wonderfully surreal, like being suspended in a light capsule. This unusual production will forever occupy a vivid corner of the memory.

This is a highly original production ... beautifully directed with a light but definite touch by Sarah John.

GLAM Adelaide Arts


Congratulations to Sarah John and her entire production team for presenting something that is genuinely refreshing and surprising. It makes you ask where theatre begins and reality ends.
