Short Review: The Changeling (Young Vic, February 18th 2012)

The Changeling is one of my favourite plays. This is a modern version that plays up the surrealism in the play.  One of the highlights was the wedding scene, which was brilliantly played.  Food became sexy, but it also became the blood. The play is about sex and madness and this production drew on these themes.  it was never clear who was really mad, who was pretending to be made and indeed what madness was.

One of my thoughts was that he layout of the theatre was a little strange. I was lucky to have got a good seat on the front row of the circle, but this was hit and miss.  I think several people had blind spots.
