Review ‘A Day in the Death of Joe Egg’ Everyman Theatre by Tanica Psalmist

A Day in the Death of Joe Egg was strikingly powerful,
her disability & discrimination was inevitable.
Judgment and suffering; caused mental frustration
Her disability, was seen as an affliction.
Dad sincerely praying for tranquility and hope
Left little Joe Egg staggering on a tight-robe.
She looked through her life, like a horoscope.
Figuratively speaking, Joe Egg felt neglected.
For her heart was deprived and had never truly, been accepted.
Fragmented heart, for her parent’s shredded apart
Whenever he tried to instigate love making to his wife,
She would shake him of, and break him inside
Joe fought to be visible, but was restricted and strained
Her disability was a downfall, she was un- attentive, it pained.
Figuratively speaking her dad was ashamed
Having an unresponsive daughter, there was nothing he gained,
He felt like Joe, was a flaw, on the families name
Having still no luck in sex, bothered him in fright,
So began winding up his wife with deceptive lies,
Weakened his good intentions, for Joe and his wife.
Feeling jealous, getting less attention then joe,
So he looked for ways, so his daughter would go.
But since that weren’t occurring he plotted little Joe’s death
His thoughts were like poisonous gasses
And family friends were, interfering threats,
observing his life, like how a predator watches it’s prey
So in the end he packed up, escaping far, far away.


Review ‘Real Human Being’ Taking Flight Theatre by Tanica Psalmist

Forum Theatre techniques were used to educate the public.
Aimed to reinforce the knowledge of right and wrong; with a simple ’Stop’ ‘Rewind’ and ‘Go’.
Any one could participate or insinuate to play a specific role,
It took us further into a deeper dimension where we discussed ideas and social dynamical views,
A story about Prejudiced behaviour, insecurities and discrimination.
The actress with a significant role, imposed mental frustration, as we watched the victim in distress.
Hot seating, thought tracking was pursued, giving us all a wider concept, to analyse each actor internally undressed.
Psychologies lead to different people wanting to get involved. It was an interesting play, dominating problems in school.
This theatre piece was wonderfully devised, integration of those in the disabled community, wilfully were involved.
Based of real life issues, real-life experiences from pupils, was printed in to the script,
This made it twice as effective, especially with young pupils words incorporated
To ensure the script was deeply sincere and powerful words were resonated.
Energy from the actors, was so strong they made you feel how they felt,
The production ‘Real Human Being’ was generally a nail biting, eyes watering, uplifting play,
Especially when insecure, venerable Alice found a friend, who helped her mental state
I’ll happily fund, to have it run again to ensure, a certain aspect, effects someone, the same way.
