A Rocking Night at the Theatre - A Typical Girls review 

 

Typical Girls. A self-aware, experimental piece of theatre with a punk rock finesse. This play touches on numerous important topics but still has moments of comedic genius. The director , Róisín McBrinn , did a good job humanising all five of the inmates while also giving the audience a good laugh. 

I enjoyed the acting. I do think that a few of the actors could have committed to certain scenes a bit more but overall I liked all the actors. The vast contrast of all the characters was fantastic to watch! I found it super interesting watching all the different relationships on the stage. The director did very well with this.

One thing that stood out to me was the deliveries of the lines. I think the timing was fabulous. It never felt like the scenes were dragging on. The energy from each character was being bounced of the actors well which was lovely to see. 

Overall, I think it was a very well done production. As an audience, we empathise with all the characters and understand their struggles. Aesthetically, it is very pleasing to watch. The in-the-round staging allowed for an intimate and engaging piece of theatre.
