This black comedy exploits the most vicious company culture of corporate condoned bullying. The night I saw it there was no cheering or booing from the audience, just sharp intakes of shocked breath at some of the cruelest comments and laughter from others.
The performances are all good but Delroy Lindo's inspirational, sympathetic old visionary and healer and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith's haunted Herald Loomis stand out as mesmerising. David Lan's intelligent production will make you think about the damage done by those years' of uprooting and slavery to the psyche of the African American.
David Lan's atmospheric production is bounded by one room in the apartment block in Chicago. The beginning of the play sees the family lining up to use the communal bathroom and we get a sense of the tension created by cramped quarters and the enforced intimacy with the neighbours.
