DRENCHED – Pleasance – 3K

By Peter Maddern

Daniel Drench presents a somewhat curious but not necessarily meaty tale of a young lonely man in Cornwall (perhaps there are no other types) and milks what he can from it. He mixes drama with good quantities of humour and the show proceeds at a pace. Was this a good topic to test out what is his style? Possibly, possibly not?

What separates Drench is his method of story telling, which is a significant divergence from most others. Within the constrained (and sweltering) Bunker, through use of evocative light and additional pre-corded voices, the story, space and character list expands substantially.

For those interested in alternative story telling, this show is well worth the visit.
