“Hello Darlings! So, you’ve decided to have a good root around my box? Congratulations. You won’t regret it!
Indeed you will not. Perfectly placed at 23.40, The Opening will open your eyes, your heart and your mouth as you laugh and gape in wonder at this fine production of titillation and no-holds-barred presentation. Skilfully directed by Caite Ni’ceileachair, tableau after tableau are seamlessly joined together to create a pictorial delight of sex, drugs and drunken madness; all in the name of love under the watchful and narrative eye of Pandora and her box of tricks. As Pandora, Matthew Blake is a stunningly striking presence as provocateur and camp host. He/she is supported with credit by a fine ensemble who serves the midnight feast with energy, verve and gusto. In all, this production is a late night wonder that is there to be enjoyed, engrossed and digested…. Fun, fun, fun all the way and a great end to a great day – do see it… go on, let your wild side run free…..
