Fast fashion. Our high streets and online stores are flooded with it. When you buy these clothes, it’s a ringing endorsement of the practices which allow for your favourite jeans or dress to arrive at your doorstep. If you’re comfortable slipping into these items, you should at least know the conditions which enable mass market clothing retailers to thrive as they do. Dirty Laundry confronts its audience with the harsh realities of fast fashion production in a compelling and gripping new play.
The Castle centres around K who claims to be a Land Surveyor. We’re told that following a commission, he must conduct work in a nearby mysterious Castle. Who exactly has he been commissioned by? We don’t know. Why has he been commissioned? Not quite sure. And what exactly goes on in this Castle? No idea. Despite the at times confusing presentation, this adaptation of the unfinished novel holds together very well and creatively draws its audience in.
