Not going to lie. This devised piece – which was 60 minutes straight through – was not what I was expecting. It can be quite difficult to critique such a short play, but I spent more time laughing at Americat than being emotionally moved as I had anticipated. (This was quite a relief!)
James Lewis’ four-hander Feel, staged by Proforca Theatre and helmed by the company’s artistic director David Brady, is definitely worth seeing. From the moment the play begins with the soundscape of the London Underground, it feels contemporary and easily accessible.
