Alleluya Bar & Cafe is an alternative space for performance, the backdrop is ceiling to floor windows, the audience are seated on an eclectic array of chairs. The set for Darling, Today We’re Going To Die is simple, depicting a typical student flat: rundown lounge to the left, dining room in the centre and kitchen to the right.
I note the play’s characters are Tiffany, George, Cameron, Anthony (not Samir per Auckland Fringe Programme) and Margo.
Anthony (Toby Goode) walks into the kitchen, commanding a British accent with a warm and comical disposition. He talks about his job, cooking for the flat, Wednesday being is a notable day for flat meetings and collaborative dinners, all five flat mates must attend.
