Theatre Review: The Lounge @ Soho Theatre
Share This Article:
The latest work from Inspector Sands, The Lounge, is a Brechtian exploration of rebellion against aging as we’re expected to. The play follows Marsha Hewitt (Lucinka Eisler) as she navigates what she plans to be her last day on earth. Set in the waiting room (or lounge, if you will) of a care home, the action swerves between generations, times, and locations as we watch the elderly residents attempt to lead (and end) their lives on their own terms, whilst being silenced by those who came before them. Giulia Innocenti is truly extraordinary; in mere moments, we see her transform between characters and watch her age in front of our eyes, with such conviction and precision – it is truly admirable.
