A Play, a Pie and a Pint

“One of the most magical theatre initiatives of the last decade”

Critics’ Circle Winner

This week's bottle of Malt goes to Erin Woods. Here is the review that Erin submitted:

Leo Butler’s ‘Juicy Fruits’ is an account of a woman’s loss and regain of motherly instinct. Although I was initially confused as to where the story was headed, I was equally as entertained. It is witty and humorous, although, I can’t deny that at times, I found Nina’s actions disturbing. However, I found that I started to gain more sympathy for her character as the play progressed. The play definitely highlights the argument of nature verses nurture, and is at times, very surreal. I was not expecting the sudden, although well crafted change of setting. Interesting, enjoyable and well performed.

If you are coming along to see this week's play Mc'Adams Torment, don't forget to leave a review for our Critics' Circle and you could be the winner of next week's bottle of Whisky.

    A beautifully crafted little play of an ideal size for a Play, a Pie and a Pint. The arid relationship between the two characters was underscored with some clever dialogue, the choreography was brilliantly conceived and equally brilliantly executed by the actors-it was balletic at times. The set was wonderful as was the lighting and effects. Yet by the end I was profoundly unmoved, feeling no empathy with either character. I didn’t really care whether they were in Dublin, Galway or Helmand. Still-maybe next week!
