Andy Corelli does an admirable job of directing the 13 characters played by the 8 actors in this unconventional theatrical space though the sight lines are at times poor when action takes place in line with the back row of the audience. Michael Daviot brings a rich voice and string presence to his louche effete and fallen characters, Baron and Actor, though the two merged somewhat making it difficult to differentiate. Played with some rising song and discreet background music, this piece of social realism that gives voice to people who can sink no further is another example of ambitious work from Siege Perilous.
