Critical Chinwag:

My first thought about attending NTW TEAM Critical Chinwag was how lovely it was to meet and chat to not only other NTW TEAM members but theatre community members I have lost touch. Also in attendance were some of the Dirty Protest Parallel Lines team. It is nice to see so many familiar faces supporting Chapter and the arts in Wales and especially the Dirty Protest lot. I was surprised to see Jonathan Dunn's name on the Thank you list as it appears this local film maker and cameraman/ director works with everyone and must never sleep! 

The play. I wasn't sure what to expect. This was only my second attendance at a one woman play and Kelly's previous work was not known to me before I sat down. I liked the way it was written. The content was sentimental rather than thrilling but relate-able- I'm sure every one can recall fancy dress costumes made from cereal boxes and maybe even a mermaid tail themselves! The stories of the fake Kellogs were entertaining, along with a few other laugh out loud lines which I won't ruin for you by quoting... 

Now for the critical bit-

Some of the mermaid/ sea metaphors washed over me a little too quickly (poor attempt there at doing a Kelly style ocean reference!) as the pacing was sometimes a little fast for me but the ASDA stories were entertaining and inclusion of other character voices was great. I liked the running section the most! 

Not sure why the technician was on stage as didn't feel like Kelly needed him there but other than that I thought the sound was beautifully subtle.
