As I suggest in my review, “WiLD”, by Teifi Emerald is one of those shows I’d probably have steered well clear of, had I not taken the opportunity to review it for the British Theatre Guide. A multi-media one-woman performance piece (staged at Chapter), using monsters as a metaphor for various insecurities, it’s highly engaging, and there is much disingenuously self-effacing humour.

Being put in the position of having to write vaguely intelligent assessments of plays has enhanced the theatre-going experience, somewhat. One has to exercise mindfulness, paying attention at all times - or carefully noting why one has failed to pay attention. Given the ephemeral nature of theatre, any process which helps one to imprint such experiences on one’s memory is extremely valuable.
