Queer – The Wicked Webs We Weave
Queer by Jane Durbridge
The basement at Higher Ground was a welcome relief on a hot Adelaide night. It’s several degrees cooler in that awkward subterranean world….worth noting if its a cool night already. The stage is set with 3 musicians ( Logan Watt, Hannah Bennett and Tim Overton) when Charles Sanders steps androgynously on to the stage.
His opening number, and all those to follow, show his outstanding vocalism off to perfection – and the band don’t miss a beat (sorry) either.
However, only by reading reviews since do I understand this Cabaret.
We (& I’ll include my +1 here too who was also bemused) seemed to miss the character changes and trying to weave the personalities together left us with a confusing, but still intriguing, show.
I’d rather leave it more eloquently to the following to explain…and thank them for their insight/experience:-
Higher Ground 7 & 16 March
