One of the most affecting pieces I saw at the Hotbed festival yesterday was James Fritz’s play Ross and Rachel - a one-hander that couldn’t exactly be described as a monologue as it had multiple characters, all performed continuously by actor Molly Vevers; part anecdote, part stream of consciousness. The play itself dealt with themes of love, death and marriage – at times funny, at times cynical, in places, incredibly dark. It was masterfully written, masterfully acted and lingered in my mind long after the lights had gone down.
