I finally got round to seeing this at the Cottesloe yesterday.

If you haven't seen the double-bill of one act plays yet, it is well worth a visit.

Both pieces are well-written, by Mark Ravenhill and Enda Wlash, and the acting is generally excellent, (with just the occasional slip into 'we're playing kidz'). Steven Webb is outstanding as the tormented 15 year-old being driven toward a terrible fate.

The direction is stylish and well-paced. The language is quite strong, if that bothers you, but otherwise, you may well love this fresh injection of energy at the National. I did!
