A Day in November

2 Stars **

A Day in November with Rumen Gavanozov of Theatre Atelie presents a piece of how we bid farewell to our last day, with a one hundred year old man, played by a puppet.

During the course of the piece he reveals his obsession for cucumbers, argues with his reflection and looks out a window. Unfortunately this is all that really happens

The character is interesting but is not given anything else to expand it.

The puppetry does have moments of grace and characterisation and could be noted for it’s cuteness but the pace is extremely slow throughout and never truly engages us.

People might find it enjoyable and quirky but it has no drive or coherent narrative.
