Description

The life of couple Jenny and Sam and their baby Phoebe, in their newly renovated house in a gentrified area of London, has been disturbed by unexplained happenings at 2:22 each night. And I guess I wanted something more, I was hungry for something that actually sort of said something about something.

The production, directed by Matthew Dunster, is trying to give sophisticated modern horror a run for its cinematic money.And with no shortage of star power – the Ahmanson cast comprises of “Crazy Rich Asians” lead Constance Wu, Emmy-nominee Finn Wittrock, “Pitch Perfect” actor Anna Camp and “Ozark” star Adam Rothenberg. Joe Absolom: What I enjoy most about touring is the interaction with the audience and bringing a great performance to new people. Follow her for all things related to classic Hollywood, musicals, the romance genre, and Bruce Springsteen.

But the play never does seem to find the balance between those two aims, the pat-ness of its conclusion satisfying the horror narrative while slightly invalidating the provocative questions at its center. If the first act notably feels like they're reciting a script, the second act gives them something to sink their teeth into. Having kicked off their spring season with a sold out performance by Ukrainian quartet DakhaBrakha, Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts (ACCA), the Brighton-based arts centre at the University of Sussex, has released details of carefully curated contemporary music, performance, screenings and talks for the coming months. The characters feel honest and humanly flawed, they remain likeable even as they say awful things to each other. The play predominantly takes place during a dinner party at the work-in-progress home of Sam (Tom Felton, Harry Potter) and Jenny (Mandip Gill, Dr Who).

The role of Lauren is almost the audience’s representative on stage, trying to decide what is real and what isn’t, Beatriz plays wonderfully against James Buckley. Felton’s commitment to the smart-ass Sam assuages those fears and the audience easily relaxes into believing his ‘better than you’ role. This sub is aimed at professionals in the theatre community working in the industry, but is open to everyone, including students, community artists, and fans of the artform.
