A Guide to Second Date Sex- Dirtystop-out and TEAfilms

5 Stars

*****

Laura is heading to Ryan’s flat. It is their second date. Both are unsure as to how the evening will go, what they should do, what they shouldn’t do. The anxiety and uncertainty are almost palpable. And the story begins. This comedy play is beautifully written by Rachel Hirons, Stef O’Driscoll directs Amy Butterworth as Laura and Thomas O’Connell as Ryan with aplomb and mixed with the video footage that is interspersed throughout the production makes this a late evening must see. The beauty for me is that everyone has been in the two principals position. Everyone has had the doubts and fears, so everyone can identify in the dilemma. Certainly the sell-out crowd in the show I saw were in accord with them. Sound comedy acting performances are delivered and make the characters totally believable and it is easy to empathise yet agonise at their reaction. I would thoroughly recommend this production to anyone who is looking for a genuine late night laugh, but don’t delay, tickets I’m sure will be at a premium.
