The Thrill of It All - Forced Entertainment - Riverside 26 Oct
The Thrill of It All, conceived and devised by Forced Entertainment, at the Riverside Studios, in Hammersmith, west London, from 26 Oct to 6 Nov 2010.
Directed by Tim Etchells, designed by Richard Lowdon, lighting by Nigel Edwards, sound by John Avery.
Nine performers in grubby tuxedos and tarnished sequins play out a comical and disconcerting vaudeville to the strains of Japanese lounge music.
Deranged dancing girls swirl, giggle, bicker and stray ever further from the point. Shabby comperes compete for the microphone and the audience’s laughter as the show itself slowly starts to unravel. Dances end in fights, jokes end in confusion and sentimental stories end in arguments.
