THE ENCHANTED – Bunker Theatre

In Dance, London theatre, Opinion, Plays, Reviews by Laura KresslyLeave a Comment

This is a pretty piece of expressionistic theatre that pleases the eyes and ears, but its favouring of poetic ambiguity and metaphor over concrete details and characterisation creates emotional distance. It’s difficult to find sympathy for a psychopath when their childhood trauma is nostalgically romanticised or vaguely alluded to when we see so little of them directly.
