‘Meek’ @Headlong Theatre at Unity till Sat 15th Sep
A not so holy story of ruthless state control that will have you hooked at the very first. A play of friendship and one woman’s determination not to be broken.
In this uncanny, high definition world, we are all more connected, more vulnerable and more human- but not equally so. This play shows how a small act of resistance can lead to a political revolution.
‘Meek’ is a tale which explores the line between religion, politics and the power of social media. A talented group of actors to watch, showing raw emotions. This play is a candid, uninhibited and emotional visceral act, with an intimate tender portrait of friendship, hurt and loss.
I was fixated by this new blend of dramatic theatre, of geopolitics and religion that catches the still sad voice of humanity. It’s a play that leads to questions and conversations, which have been incorporated with a post-show discussion.
‘Meek’ is certainly a play that reflects on our own fraught times giving the audience a roller coaster of tension and adrenaline, of nervousness and intrigue, drawing you in deeper and deeper right until the sting at the end.
This is a must to see, with a Sat Mat 2pm.
‘Meek’ by Penelope Skinner, a Fringe First Winner and directed by Amy Hodge gives the audience a play that’s very much of our times.
It just might change the way you think!
