One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest – SADOS 23rd Nov 2012
Reviewed by Laura Bailey
On the 23rd of November, the South Holland Centre became Oregon psychiatric hospital. The action had already started before you even entered the performance space. Patients were in reception, throughout the corridors and pacing in the auditorium, some mumbling, some rocking, some displaying violent tendencies, but all with one thing in common-They were all insane.
The same word, insane, is a word I would also apply to SADOS’s production of ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s nest’- a performance combining black humor with deep and moving scenes- had the audience laughing, crying (for me at least) and constantly had us on the edge of our seats.
The use of props, set and lighting also gave the performance a realism which transported the audience into the hospital with the patients and staff. I found myself almost forgetting I was watching a play.
Although this performance contained a few stumbles on lines and weak accents from some of the cast, these minor factors did not take away from the sheer brilliance of the performance. An amazingly gripping performance of a film and book I very much adore and if all performances are to this standard, I will definitely be there for the next SADOS production.
Review of Hand Drawn By Crayons and Chantel McGregor 24th Oct 2012
By Laura Bailey
What a spectacular evening of big voices and extra big talent! With Hand Drawn By Crayons supporting to kick start the show; the audience were treated to arrange of upbeat, catchy and live performances ranging from slow covers to quirky originals-Teamed with Hand Drawn By Crayons infectiously happy, fun and humorous personality- only the grumpiest of individuals could come away to the interval without a smile plastered across their faces or a tune in their heads!
After the interval, Chantel McGregor had the audience rocking out to her signature blues and rock style and chilling to her acoustic sets. Combined with her great vocals, god-like guitar skills and hilarious banter, Chantel continued to make the audience rise from their seats and cheer! I feel there hasn’t been a good rock chick on the scene for a long time, but with her versatility with blues and acoustic, her amazing vocal range and her incredibly skilled band mates (Ritchie on base and Keith on drums) and the way she looses herself in the music, Chantel delivers a ‘fabulous’ performance that I hope returns to Spalding very soon!!_____________________________________________________________________________________
