Me Too – A Sideshow ***

New Town Theatre, 5 – 30 August 2009

Reviewed for The List (issue 638)

Ulrike Quade’s one-woman show, about the outrageous, tragic life of conjoined twins Daisy and Violet, would benefit from a change of space. The Majestic is too large for sideshows, and the play’s dream-logic plotlessness would play better somewhere more intimate. While it’s impossible to forget that Quade’s sister is a puppet, their rapport never falls short of totally believable.

Written by Ulrike Quade

Cast includes Ulrike Quade (Arthur/Daisy/Violet)
