Last night was the opening night at Theatr Clwyd’s latest production of ‘For the grace of you go I’ the synopsis of the show is stated as
“Adding meats to pizzas, Jim’s life is going nowhere. But watching I Hired A Contract Killer, he finds a solution – he will just put out a hit on himself. What could possibly go wrong?”
A darkly funny new comedy.
The show lasted 80 mins in duration. From the moment you walk in you feel immersed. The visual effects were eye-catching and your drawn into the performance. I felt that the performance was tense and resonated with how society can perceive disability. Both in and out of the workplace. It resonated with me personally. As I have been subjected to some of the ridicule shown within the peace. I found it to be thought provoking and it was nice to see disability and perceptions be addressed. I do believe though that this is not a comedy. Sure, there a couple of moments that are amusing but I felt the content was more thought provoking than comedy. That said you should check out this show. It’s a shame it can only be seen by a limited audience because it should be seen by all.
The visuals and lighting were incredible it’s hard to describe as it is something I have never seen before. I won’t spoil it for you as this is something that should be witnessed in person.
The performance cast consists of Rhodri Meilir known for being in hit tv show My Family on BBC1, Remy Beasley who has starred in Stella and Tourist Trap and finally Darren Jeffries who has had success from stage and screen such as BBC 1 soap Doctors.
