A great job, husband, BMW on the drive; she seems to have it all. But when a text from a lost love stops her in her tracks, we realise appearances might be deceptive. There is absolutely no doubt Denise Van Outen is a great actress.
She plays Stephanie with unabashed truthfulness.
The piece is also very beautifully directed by Tamzin Outhwaite. Together they have navigated the ebbs and flows of the piece, and deal with the important rhythms of a monologue performance with ease.
The piece has been reworked since it was last seen in It makes perfect dramaturgical sense that Stephanie sings rearranged pop classics in this jukebox monologue. Steve Anderson, has re-imagined a trio of classic tracks as bitter-sweet torch songs, which absolutely reveal a greater contextual poignancy within the lyrics.
There are moments of monologue that scream to be sung a chance encounter on a beach, for exampleand if Van Outen was given an original score this could rival Tell Me On a Sunday in terms of storytelling done well.
When Van Outen does sing, Stephanie invariably returns to the late s and early s, literally and figuratively. And she might have a point. Its greatest asset is an honest and straight-talking performance from Van Outen.
It could do with more music, for if it allowed Outen to sing, it really could fly. You can Update Your Preferences or Unsubscribe at any time by clicking the link in the footer of any we send you.
