Fringe Review: Hunch @ Assembly Roxy
Share This Article:
Produced by DugOut Theatre and directed by Sara Joyce, Hunch is a super-powered story of love and the hard choices we make for it. Performed and written by Kate Kennedy, it follows the story of Una, an awkward, meek woman who feels physically ill when forced to make decisions. When she saves a restaurant from a hidden bomb whilst breaking down over what to order, she discovers she has the superpower to know other peoples’ gut-decisions. Invited to work with the superheroes of the city as ‘Hunch’, she meets Head, Heart, Genitals, and Hack who all work to help guide the citizens of Hum.

A small cubic area, lined with a black backdrop, with two large lights, two chairs, a small table, and a step ladder. At first glance it looked messy, possibly amateurish, until Kennedy claimed the space with her booming vocals and towering physique, as she commanded the technical effects with rapid, power gestures.
