Bickley, however, succeeds impressively with this narration of a gradually disintegrating marital relationship. It will spoil your enjoyment to give much more away. Suffice it to say that the explicit sexual subject matter is powerfully experienced through the monologue. It takes wonderful acting and Louise Templeton was thoroughly watchable throughout her amazing performance. In the intimate setting of the Jam Factory Boiler Room, you can't fake tears. Louise didn't need to. Her emotional range was quite stunning and very moving. Watching her is as near as vicarious experience can get, before it is too painful to bear.
Fortunately Bickley seasons his play with well-observed amusing human responses, so the piece stays entertaining, despite addressing very serious subject matter concerning the closest we ever get to each other. Don't go to see this play if you like to sit back and let a play wash over you, but if you like to be challenged, informed and provoked into looking at some of your own inhibitions and prejudices through another lens - don't miss it. Definitely for consenting adults!
