Weaving through reality, alchemy and myth, this is storytelling with delusions of grandeur. Join our unlikely alpha male on a dark comic quest through compulsion, control and denial. And the light at the end of the tunnel? That's love... isn't it?

 

Despite our Sat Nav trying to make us drive through part of the new Olympic Village (i.e. what used to be a road) (if you get to this venue via Sat Nav, input a diversion to avoid St Christopher's Road), we made it to the venue - a tres funky theatre space within the Hackney Wick industrial estate (nearest station Hackney Wick). 

 

We loved the space, great industrial unit, really raw and incorporating a bar serving drinks and lovely meals (we had a sausage stew with coriandor and tumeric butter on rye bread for £8).

 

Property of Sand, a one woman show, makes perfect use of the post modern space. A monologue, well semi-conversation with the audience takes us through the nameless protagonists past and present to the suffering of a harrowing moment.

Eve makes excellent incorporation of props, lights, sound and movement to bring the conversation alive. The play is her short story, touching the surface of relevant moments to bring the audience with the character to the emotional climax, and then drops the audience there.

 

Touching, with moments of humour and poignancy, a well told story.

 

We recommend catching this if you get a chance and keep an eye out for more performances from Eve Parmiter
