Back in Portsmouth on Thursday night, I went to see Testosterone by Rhum and Clay at my favourite theatre, New Theatre Royal. This is a show about trans-gender, and told the story of one young man’s experiences. There were some very thought-provoking moments, in particular the speech about being a man and the power that it gives you.
The set was a locker room. I wasn’t sure of the decision to place a bench across the downstage, as it created an additional barrier between show and audience, though I loved the lockers (especially as percussion instruments). There was a lot of dancing too, to what seemed like full-length numbers, and while the energy was cracking, I would have preferred that time to be used to explore further into the subject.
