A pleasure to see Zoë Wanamaker and Zrinka Cvitešić onstage but they deserve a much better play than Two Ladies at the Bridge Theatre.
There’s excellent acting in Two Ladies, a play that tickles the senses and the intellect by playfully morphing from one genre to another.
It certainly packs a punch, and this is not solely due to the finesse displayed in the writing. Like an ultrasound revealing Bodies’ truly threatening potential, director Jude Christian heads a show that at one point sends an intersubjective shiver reverberating throughout her audience.

Experimental family drama is very powerful, but its theatrical form is too complicated for its own good.
