The latest Late Show at the Old Fitzroy hotel is Kayak, featuring fabulous actors Francesca Savige, Matilda Ridgeway and Matthew Cheetham and directed by Adam Cook. This line up alone would direct anyone with a vague interest in theatre to the play, since these folk never feature in sub-par productions. They are spectacularly up to par, with acting performances that are funny, tragic and very nuanced, vital for a play that has such a swift narrative. The scenes are short but enormous amounts of detail are conveyed about the characters and their backstories. This play is pure entertainment!
We are so lucky to be able to see shows with such talented, sought after performers and directors simply because they are passionate about doing small shows and enabling audiences without big budgets to be entertained. This play is only on for one week at my favourite independent theatre venue. Do not miss it !
