Review of 'Contractions' at the Alexander Bar

3rd February 16

Having come from the corporate world, I was curious to see Mike Bartlett's Contractions (directed by Greg Karvellas). Initially a radio drama called ‘Love Contract’, it was first presented by London’s Royal Court Theatre, and has debuted in South Africa at the Alexander Bar. With only two characters and a bleak, unchanging stage, one might have expected difficulty in retaining the audience’s attention. However, the relentless repetition is part of what makes this brutal black comedy work.
