Theatre Review – The Skeleton Woman

The stage opens with the framework of a boat on stage and that pretty much described the play for me. At the end of 70 minutes, I was still left waiting and wondering if there was more. I had only a framework. The chemistry between the two actors added nothing to the emotion I hoped to feel. As much as I wanted to connect and empathise, I couldn’t.

The attention to detail, however, was marvelous  The background noises of a restaurant, lights used to depict time and moments, the camera flashes during the interview — all added so much to the experience of the play. I loved the metaphor of the goose for the writer’s life, though I’m still wondering if having the scriptwriters as actors is an advantage or not.
