Description

Psycho Productions and Cusack Projects Ltd. Written and directed by Matt Wilkinson, performed by Emily Bruni. Set Design: James Turner. Lighting Design: Elliot Griggs. Sound Design: Gareth Fry. A gripping, at times hilarious, revenge tale about an actress in her 40s under investigation for the murder of an auteur theatre director. Set against the backdrop of a stage production of Hitchcock’s Psycho, Emily Bruni (Peep Show) plunges us into the dark heart of show business. Nominated for two Off West End Theatre Awards. @mattwilkinson08 / @PCC62 / @emilybruni. matt-wilkinson.co.uk/psychodrama #PsychodramaThePlay

Fluent, engaging little mystery whose plot kept you guessing. Wonderful performance by Bruni, enhanced by clever use of music, sound effects and lighting. The running gag of the main protagonist’s obsession with clothes labels meant the tone stayed laudably light. Do see.

Brilliantly delivered piece of story-telling (the actress certainly deserved the part). Once we had worked it out, very satisfying. 3.5*

[From Preview:] Stunning acting & direction: huge superb dynamic range, emotion, contrast. For me story barely revealed through obliqueness & time leaps. Impressive and recommended.

Corr Blimey (5/5 stars) 1 day ago

A magnetically addictive seventy-minute performance, Psychodrama delivers a precise blow to the industry’s archaic attitudes and malign grievances toward women of a ‘certain age’

Edinburgh Guide (4/5 stars) 1 day ago

The monologue is a most original concept akin to listening to an audio book of a novel, with Emily Bruni adopting various voices and accents to play the various characters, featuring all the nuances of conversation as well as her own shifting emotional feelings from pleasure to panic.
