Abigail has just opened at The Bunker, London’s newest theatre in the heart of London Bridge. Despite having been open for just four months 110 seat venue has already made an impressive splash in the Capital’s theatrical scene.
Fractured timelines can be an interesting way to tell a story – fragmented shards of drama shuffled in a non-linear narrative, forcing audiences to piece together a throughline to the truth, such as it may exist. But in these cases, we are very much at the mercy of playwrights actually providing enough information to reconstruct enough of a plot. And sad to say, I’m not too sure that Fiona Doyle’s Abigail actually does that.
This world premiere production leaves the audience with more questions than answers and looks at the lengths people would go to for control. There is certainly a lot of freedom to explore the many different directions this intense, gripping but not straightforward play by Fiona Doyle.
