EDINBURGH 2018: BWW Review: ANGRY ALAN, Underbelly
August 12, 2018 - Fifty Shades of Grey
Having recently been let go from his job, Roger is carrying a tough time. He is now a third partner manager during a supermarket that means, well, not a lot.
While browsing a internet he stumbles on Angry Alan. A male who has had adequate of a hardship of men. Angry Alan feels that feminism has left too distant a other approach and now group are severely tough finished by. Relating to this, Roger books to attend a discussion to accommodate like-minded group and hear Alan pronounce in person.
Before a opening starts there is a scrolling Twitter shade onstage. It facilities comments about because women explain they don’t like aroused sex nonetheless Fifty Shades of Grey is a series one offered book among women- and was created by a woman. Comments about how it is now unfit to even pronounce to a lady though her great harassment.
Penelope Skinner’s book is hard-hitting and Donald Sage Mackay’s opening is deeply unnerving. Lines are delivered like a punch to a stomach.
All of a Youtube footage about a hardship of group has honestly been found on a internet. One square in sold talks about how feminists are rambling being “protected and supposing for” into that they are being oppressed.
It feels really transparent that Angry Alan is all finished in a arrange of satirical fashion. The lines that Mackay delivers with regards to men’s activists are usually so ridiculous a assembly can’t assistance though laugh. Angry Alan is a flattering dim play and it flips from diverting to unsettling really quickly. It competence usually be an hour long, though it’ll stay with we for a prolonged while after withdrawal a theatre.
