Crush – Free

Crush – Free

Lizzy Mace/PBH’s Free Fringe

An innovative idea, with its combination of spoken word and video clips: Lizzy Mace offers an interesting concept although one that ultimately feels more akin to a self-help class in relationships than a production. Being asked to recount memories such as those of the very first crush you ever had offers the basis for a pleasant nostalgia trip, as one is able to recognise and empathise with many of the experiences mentioned. The underlining message of the production appears to be the importance of being a WOTM (woman of the moment) to an attempt to lead a fruitful life; it’s a congenial performance but one which unfortunately didn’t present much in the way of comedy.
