THE WHITE DEVIL at the Swan

December 13, 2014

Oh dear! Oh dear! Oh dear! it is not often that I am racing to get out of the theatre at the first opportunity. THE WHITE DEVIL at the Swan Theatre quickly became painful in the extreme. I am really not exactly sure what we were watching other than degradation. The choice to set the play in what seemed to me to be a bright white almost plastic bubble of the nouveau rich just did not work for me. I could not relate to the characters at all and I had no empathy for any of them. The lines seemed to be laboured and there was none of the rhythm or poetry in John Webster’s play that one finds in Shakespeare.

Overall Bloody awful experience!
