Description

'What does ‘true’ mean?' You can only tell a story so many times before it morphs into something else. So by the end, who's to say what was real? A dynamic piece of new writing, Plasters is an intimate window into the mind of a young woman, who is struggling to piece together her own recollection of what’s happened. Join Tessa as she tries to understand what is true and what was real, taking an in-depth look at something she doesn’t want to see.

What is truth? I definitely reccomend going to see plasters on its last night, a brilliant and complex portrayal of a relationship on the rocks. A must see.

Strong showing from 2 talented people. The man reminded me of David Tennant a bit which is a compliment! Tessa was extraordinary going through all the emotions.

I've just watched this show and feel compelled to review immediately. The two lead actors deliver excellent performances... natural and fluid... At times disturbingly intimate. Their timing and chemistry is near perfect. Without giving anything away, HE switches characters beautifully and palpably, and SHE doesn't, not to the same extent, very much on purpose. The acting, directing, timing and delivery is flawless.

I'm not sure about the material though. There are parts that are messy and disengaging... Not bad... But not consistently good either. If the writing was a bit tighter, this would be an even better production.

But definitely worth a watch... Very impressive performances.

Absolutely fantastic show! One of the best I’ve saw in years at the fringe. Very thought provoking and extremely well written.

Hypnotising. A flawlessly acted play by two beautiful main characters. I would see it again to continue analysing it. Great show!

Fringebiscuit (4/5 stars) 19 days ago

Emma Tadmor’s vibrant new work deconstructs the relationship between a couple with seemingly unfinished business. Witty characters rival the deftly delivered plot twists, playing on false impressions and creating an enthralling narrative despite a rather weak ending.

The Play's the Thing 20 days ago

Written by Tadmor, Plasters looks closely at romantic love and questions the truth behind our recollections of it.

They put the joys and sorrows of a life time into just under an hour of theatre... Like a radar the importance of the play was there for all to see and to relate to.

Theatre, Films and Art Reviews (4/5 stars) 37 days ago

Do we ever understand the real definition behind “the true meaning of love”? On stage couple, Andrea and Chris discuss in-depth whether love is real and its meaning to each of them. By Andrea (Emma Tadmor) declaring that she believes”it’s not real” sees Chris (Julian Chesshire), her boyfriend recoiling and asking “how can you love me…?” Switching between the actor’s couple status on and off the stage brings another dimension to the production. Which allows the audience to follow two conflicting relationships.
