Edinburgh Review: I’ll Always Think Of You That Way

This odd little comedy, like both of its main characters, seems confused about what it wants to be. Focusing on the friendship between two women who meet in rehab (flighty, dreamy Savannah and frumpy, depressive Alison), the play charts their attempts to put their lives back in order, wrestling with dating agencies, job agencies, family problems and their own conflicts and frustrations along the way. The two actresses have natural chemistry; there’s a charming sweetness to the relationship between the two friends and the occasional moment of great comic timing. But the characters don’t develop, the plot never quite seems to start, and most of the jokes simply aren’t up to scratch. Watchable but unremarkable.

2/5
