The Low Road*** (Royal Court, 11 April 2013)

Posted: April 14, 2013 in Theatre

Sadly, I left at the interval due to feeling unwell. This is a satire on American capitalism, starting with the premise that its 18th Century roots lay in prostitution, theft and slavery. The writer’s previous works include the multi-award winning and highly entertaining “Clybourne Park” and this is similar in that the targets for the satire are very obvious and the humour is often crude. Unfortunately, the first half was patchy and some scenes were very drawn out. However, it certainly would not have merited an early exit in other circumstances.
