Edinburgh Review: Third Breast

How far would you go to create a paradise on earth? Utopia becoming dystopia is a wonderful basis for a story, and so it’s a shame that this play goes so badly awry from the very beginning. It may have been terribly written in its original Polish or just badly translated, but the script was filled entirely with clumsy lines and painfully obvious allegories. The actors had this dud of a script to wrestle with, but their wooden and mannered acting ensured that nothing on stage ever seemed believable, and the live music, consisting entirely of cheesy dramatic chords at obvious moments, was the final kiss of death to a performance that was flawed on every level.
