WINNER: Atlantic Fringe Festival Outstanding Direction Award
Would you love someone enough to leave them forever?
The audience and chance decide how the story will be told in the world première of Against the Odds – a charming, funny and deeply moving new one-woman show, co-written by performer Jade Blue and director George Dillon and inspired by Paul Auster and Weetabix!
Flora is a disturbed young woman, a mathematical prodigy with an unbearable insight into the human predicament. Harry, her story-writer father, is an ordinary man with an extraordinary dilemma, caught between doing the right thing and the thing that is best for everyone. Tonight he will see her again for the first time in two and a half years… and maybe for the last time ever.
One woman. One story. One thousand possibilities.
Tonight, the audience decide. Tonight, chance and choice collide.
Sometimes, whatever you choose, you lose
A perfect mixture of abstract ideas and human drama… A brave and distinctive piece of work.www.BritishTheatreGuide.com
Beguiling… powerful… rewarding!
A tour-de-force of acting and narrative ideas… a bravura performance… ultimately very moving.
A stunning piece of theatre, which provokes without undermining the audience’s perceptions… well worth seeing!
Not only a beautiful piece of Fringe theatre, but it is the type of show that would nourish and enrapture audiences of the professional theatre across this country as well.www.twisitheatreblog.com (Canada)
