Now I have to admit the Israel-Palestine war is not something I know very much about. More than that I’m not massively into didactic political theatre. However, with the excellent performances by the three cast¬†(Lisa Came, Sidney Keanes & Daniel Rabin)¬†Fever Chart was well worth the ticket. It’s a tricky piece, three short playlettes really, one in a zoo, one in a clinic and one in a back yard.

It wasn’t a balanced view, but it wasn’t supposed to be. Daniel Rabin portrayed two interesting characters with a dynamism that added a maturity and strength to the evening, Lisa Came’s singing and clear vocal performance, coupled with the very different parts she played was extremely watchable and Sidney Keanes delivered a fine performance including a 15 or so minute monologue that was enthralling.

Studio two is a nice setting and feels very intimate, which suited the piece, and the set, a sort of broken down distressed back wall with a matching floor fitted very effectively with some splashes of colour which I liked, and add to that the textual pigeons on the wall I was gently impressed with.

Well acted, strong performances led to a thoughly enjoyable evening. It also affirmed my support of one act pieces. (Even as here split into three).
