A tale of unrealised dreams. 'Marion and Douglas are a working-class version of Martha and George from Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, damning in their savage disappointments and derogatory take downs of each other. The show excels through the consummate writing of Bernie Maxwell, and his powerful performance as the hapless, put upon husband Douglas, alongside the terrifyingly good Romina Tappi as his frustrated wife; permanently paralytic through ennui and alcohol. If you love your theatre tight, terrific and challenging, live out your hopes and dreams' ****½ (Advertiser, Adelaide).
