See it if you would enjoy two actors pouring out their energy to portray two characters in the push and pull of a relationship in an ambitious script.
Don't see it if you want a linear play - this jumps and you must listen closely to the constant dialogue or you will be lost. You must envision all-bare set
See it if wildly imaginative game playing between two talented actor dancers exploring the rough edges of their sexuality would keep your attention
Don't see it if you expect a clear plot. There are lots of suggestions of what might or might not be happening but nothing is ever quite what it seems.
“The power and majesty of the theater are affirmed by this ravishing production of the acclaimed English playwright Philip Ridley's beguiling fantasia. A shipwrecked young couple engage with monkeys, aliens and serpents as memories and sometimes violent erotic feelings are expressed.”
“The truth is: I saw ‘Tender Napalm’because it had a great title. Finding the delicacy of the language is half the battle, and Philip Ridley's script, originally presented in London in 2011, is challenging. In some aspect of this dreamlike, imaginary place, there's plenty to do, in the mind of the audience, to create a narrative that's built on the presence of this Man and Woman, who persist, always dancing, tempting the larger explosion.”
