A dysfunctional, voyeuristic and darkly funny love story, but a love story all the same.
‘I limit myself to a quick look every two hours at first. But this soon becomes one long look that lasts the whole day. And soon, though I don’t know who or where she is, I feel closer to her than I ever felt to any other living soul.’
Brought together by a voyeuristic relationship that teeters on the verge of stalking, introverted Sophie and eccentric Esther relive the story of how they met. ‘Funny, playful and affecting’ (The New York Times), Blink poses direct questions as to how we achieve intimacy in an ever more isolated society.
‘It’s a real gem of a play that tackles some interesting questions in an intelligent way, and leaves you appreciating how hard it is to find real love in a virtual world, especially if you’re LGBT, an introvert, an eccentric, or even all three.’
‘A sweet, poignant little story, never trying to be more than it claims. This show will break your heart like your elementary school girlfriend did, and you’ll love every minute of it. The actors have a firm grasp on their characters, and fill out the world they create brilliantly. It left me giggling, and more than a little weepy. See it if you get the chance, you won’t regret it.’
