Here Together

Autonomous Productions—The Rachel Browne Theatre

Four friends get together to celebrate at a wedding, but not everything is as it seems. There is plenty of other forces at work rebuilding the facades and walls torn down as they unravel why they maybe are no longer friends. This play is a mix of modern dance and a straight drama. Through an inventive use of movement and lights the play frequently swaps from traditional scenes to internal character monologues. I found that none of the scenes went on too long and that the characters were well fleshed out and relatable. I certainly saw myself in all 4 characters by the end of it. I did find the script to be very confusing. Although all the segments were cool there was a lot going on. This made it difficult to understand exactly what was happening. This was not helped by the lack of an ending. Nothing was wrapped up or truly explained. No one knew it was over and myself and many audience member were hesitant to leave in case there was more. There was also a gag in the show of bleeping an external characters name only to have it never be brought up or revealed. Despite its flaws, it is still definitely worth a see especially for the dance segments.
