Review by Sharu Delilkan 15th Dec 2013
The foyer of The Herald Theatre was buzzing with excitement as people read the decree on the scrolls adorning the walls. The Dust Palace had thrown down the gauntlet to us as audience members, and everyone headed towards their seats wondering what they were in for – especially since the dreaded “audience participation” card had been mentioned. [Slight spoiler: FYI in retrospect this ends up not being a biggie in the scheme of things, so fear not].
Although I appreciate the eight multi-coloured doors on stage were an ode to the antique advent calendar I couldn’t help thinking that they reminded me of the mystery version of Celebrity Squares. All in all The Dust Palace had cleverly set the tone from the get-go, which gave them the upper hand once ‘the proceedings’ commenced. [More]
