Local companies play on Theatre & Two Dogs bring us Mick Gordon 1990's verbatim play about Love, On Love. Verbatim plays aren't my favourite style, to be fair, and this early example holds many of the problems I find with the technique -- primarily, what is the intent of this collection of stories? why are these people telling them now?
The performances of the cast are strong, bringing to life gender-blind characters of a variety of ages. Notable are Ross McMillan's performance with Ian Bastin of an older couple telling their kids about how they got together, and Dora Carrol's beautifully crafted monologue about the man who saved her. That said, the performances can't save this script.
I spent a little time hoping that Davis Plett's beautiful video work that we see during the pre-show, or the delightful music would make their way back in to the performance, but they did not.
Overall some great performances by local actors, but not a script that will stick with me.
