Reminiscent of the works of Ionesco, Trois Ruptures is a triptych of breakups—relationships that end for various reasons, exhaustion, latent homosexuality, and Twit-like hatred, all with varying levels of violent result.
Currently at the King’s Head Theatre, Diary of A Nobody is a wonderful mix of the best bits of Python-esque slapstick, multi-performances reminiscent of the Reduced Shakespeare Company, and an extremely tight design that only adds to the purposeful haphazard nature of the production.
