The Lights

Saturday, 03 August, 1996

The Court has converted the auditorium so that the audience is sitting on the stage while the acting is performed in the Stalls, Dress Circle and Upper Circle. This is a clever idea that works well, although if you are at the front it can hurt your neck having to look up to the Upper Circle, however most of the action is performed in the Stalls area.

There is no real plot to the play which covers 24 hours of city life. It does however cover several incidents involving stealing, lying, cheating, drugs, sex and poverty.

The play has some amusing parts, but it really is a moral kind of play that makes you look at life more closely and reveals how easy it is for us to turn a blind eye to other people problems, blaming them for their own plight and ignoring our own responsibilities. The play shows how easy it is for us to fall into the same trap. The drama is not morbid though, and is well worth seeing
