Three Weeks: I Am The Dead (30/08/11)

Some say life is like a box of chocolates. Others, like a highway. Very few, however, can say they’ve ever heard anyone say in passing that life is in fact like an artichoke. It’s a continuous metaphor that sticks out sorely in this compelling two-member cast performance about life and dealing with its obstacles. One of those terrifying obstacles faced is testicular cancer, – which really warrants a play on its own, as the lead male character is too busy babbling about all his other thoughts – so the problems he faces after his diagnosis are left until the final third of the play. A likeable lead female makes this a watchable rather than an engrossing hour.
