An increasingly dated postcard from America’s apartheid past. Relentlessly aggressive red meat eating, tail chasing high school routine grows wearisome. Teen pregnancy issue interesting. Collin Carver steals the show as a hysterically funny bespectacled geek in plaid – and kills as an angel with a song. Kylie Clarke Johnson also impresses.
Fascinating time capsule of 19th century white American mythology. One of those worlds where there’s about as much chance of seeing a black face on stage as a pack of Mujahideen. Well done, a great cast, and gorgeously infectious songs. But the stories and lives not shown here loom large.
