The Wait

 

Review


We’re always waiting for something, aren’t we? Waiting for that job promotion. Waiting to meet that special someone. Waiting for our favourite band to come to town. The thing is, life still happens while we wait and more often than not, we fail to see the magic in those moments. The Wait is a collection of three interconnected scenes that explore that space of time we often negate as unimportant. In the first scene, you see Frankie and Anthony meet while waiting for Metric tickets. The second act features an older woman named Elena recounting the tales of her youth. Finally, you meet Frank and Miles, two brothers sitting in the hospital waiting for the birth of Miles’ son. While it takes The Wait a little while to get going, it hits an emotional stride in Elena’s scene. If you’re looking for a cerebral moment of theatre, The Wait’s a good pick. However, if it’s action and intrigue you seek, prepare to be left waiting. Reviewed by Kass Mitchell

    I loved each of the 3 mini stories in this play. Each scene gave me a new perspective of things I’ve never thought about. The props were simple where the music and the acting made up for the rest of the scene imagery because the directing was done well enough that my imagination filled in the rest of what the surroundings of each scene could look like in my mind. Over all it was thought provoking, entertaining and humourous! A must see!

    I am so glad I had the privilege of seeing this show. The stage direction was brilliant. The content was thought provoking and well written. The actors gave their all in three, uniquely stunning performances.

    Very well done. Each part was well thought out, directed and performed, right down to the transitions.

    This is a show I will proudly recommend.
