Play: The Fantasist

A phenomenal play about a woman’s mental illness. The acting was outstanding. There were only three roles , the ill woman, her friend, and a nurse but the interpretation of each was excellently executed. Very clever use of puppets which each had their own character and were very real. The puppeteers were visible, but cleverly were invisible and there was often two people operating one puppet character showing incredible coordination. There was danc- ing furniture but the whole mood of the play was very dark. The madness seemed never ending. I went away from the play feeling unsettled although the show ended on an optomisitic note.
