Before I Sleep by DreamThinkSpeak

I went to Before I Sleep, by DreamThinkSpeak, yesterday. It is a ‘promenade theatre’ production, loosely based on Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard.

I thoroughly recommend it. It plays throughout Brighton Festival, and is well worth seeing (experiencing?). Delightful on so many levels.

I had a surprised, happy smile on my face for most of the experience. Beautiful, funny, and moving. It was especially relevant to my interest in immersive experiences, and many of the dramatic devices I have written about were used to good effect.

I especially enjoyed the olfactory aspect. Every sense was informed. And the opening scene is great. I don’t want to say too much about the content – wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise for anyone. Go see/hear/smell/sense!

Only read the programme you get handed afterwards if you are keen on words. I prefer sensory information and interpretative space. For me, the experience itself was rich enough, and left delicious spaces to ponder and DreamThinkSpeak in…

Once this run is over, I’d like to write a bit more about it. But for now, it’s hush-hush.
