Four bedraggled young souls are held captive in the dirt and darkness, at the mercy of unseen god-like figures who reward displays of cruelty and unfeelingness. Playwright Maree Freeman summons the spirit of Beckett and The Hunger Games in her dystopian dungeon. Kip Williams (Under Milk Wood) directs with a steady hand – Nate Edmondson’s spooky score perfectly serves the production’s cinematic sensibilities – and does a fine job at pitting his tortured players against each other: Michele Durman, Gabriel Fancourt, Amanda McGregor and, convincingly taking charge, Lizzie Schebesta. The Old Fitz at its grittiest and grippingest.
