Royal Court

Went to see the Faith Machine by Alexi Kaye Campbell at the Royal Court. To put it in one sentence, it's about ideologies, believes and faith and the loss of it, religion, consumerism, capitalism and love. Sounds a lot, which it was  (the play even brushed Alzheimer), but although 2 1/2 hours long, there was hardly any length, some very good dialogues, some very good monologues, some stereotyping (intentional?!) and it was thought provoking and entertaining.

The theatre is dedicated to new and innovative work by British and foreign writers. Risky is what they like and the audience can also easily take a risk with ticket prices not more than 10£ on a Monday. And all this right in the middle of Sloane Square, the epicentre of Posh London. Fantastic.
