The Guid Sisters (3*)

Ian’s Review

We usually see most of the plays in the Lyceum’s season, and they are usually of a very high standard.

The Guid Sisters was an entertaining season opener, but the the way the production weaved soliloquies from the main characters into the action felt clumsy and slightly overdone.  This in turn made the production feel disjointed, a bit like channel hopping on the television between two different channels coverage of the same event.  I’ve seen this sort of thing done much better.

The cast delivered a lot of energy and managed to make their characters feel as thoroughly dislikeable as the plot demanded.  It feels to me like their performance was let down by the staging.
