THE SPOILS (play)
Ends 13th August 2016.
Misunderstood Ben sets out to stop the wedding of his old high-school
Jesse Eisenberg stars in his own play, Scott Elliott directs.
Not available. Professional reviewers unanimously praise lead Jesse Eisenberg
for a "Woody Allen" quality to his black comedy writing. All nervous twitches
(though some garbled jokes as his dialogue wasn't found to be clear) his
performance if of the same standard. Alfie Allen is praised too as Ted, and all
also note Kunal Nayyar as flatmate Kalyan, Annapurna Sriram and Katie Brayben
The problem is with the script itself. A few feel the "out there" psychology
is too American for British tastes, others that we simply don't get much of a
reason for the central character's motivations. Rescue comes with the pacing set
by the director, and a final redemptive quality to the piece. With such strong
playing and some good comic lines, though, this is considered a far better bet
than the recent "The End of Longing" by many of the professionals.
