Holiday By Raimondo Cortese, Ranters Theatre
Malthouse Theatre, July 15 to Aug 2, 2008
Reviewer: Kate Herbert
Stars: 4 &1/2
Holiday by Ranters Theatre won two Green Room awards in 2007 and it is a happy, almost meditative time in the theatre.
We are voyeurs on two men (Patrick Moffatt, Paul Lum) who seek the perfect state of relaxation as they muse on unrelated topics - love, travel, religion, history - in a mutual stream of consciousness or spontaneously sing a Baroque love song.
It is beautifully performed and deliciously, deceptively simple.
