X The Play, Royal Court, London. April 2016.
I really don't know where to start with this play, and I think that the fault is with me. From reviews I'd heard on the radio (possibly only half listened to as I was cooking) made me think I was going to see something that was going to be akin to The Martian or Red Dwarf - a comedy set in a space outpost.
It started out like that, a group of people are in a ship or base on Pluto and all of a sudden they fall out of communication with Earth. So far what I was expecting.
Then things got weird and it became more like a horror film, and then it got even more strange and while it will stay with me for a long time I am not sure at all what the play was about. Dementia? Madness? Nightmare? Drug hallucination?
I'm not sure it matters in some way as Rebecca and I are still talking about it, looking for other theories on the meaning and generally being haunted by it. It won't make my top 10 but I don't think it will be in the bottom three either, thought provoking is good.
