The Lady Killers – Double Trouble Theatre Co.

A trio of short monologues written by Matt Fox and featuring three young women who share a common bond – they have all killed for one reason or another. There is some good storytelling going on here and the actors (Zoe Wells, Rosie Dunjay and Daniella Piper) perform each piece really well.

Produced over Zoom and soundly directed by Mack Newton & Emily Collier this short piece of isolation theatre excels in creating an almost claustrophobic atmosphere to each of the stories that the women have to tell. Fox’s monologues are direct and to the point.

The standout monologue for me was 150 which featured Daniella Piper and a story of revenge in the USA (no spoilers!!), the other two monologues were reasonably interesting but 150 really did stick in the memory.

Produced by Adam Baylis & Double Trouble Theatre Co., this was an excellent showcase for the writer, the actors and the company. It’ll be interesting to see what they all get up to in the future.
