Met the great love of your life yet? How in control of that decision are you really? What if it all comes down to looks and your subconsciou? Marianne Thamm recently saw The Girl in the Yellow Dress, a play by author Craig Higginson. In the play Higginson explores “this complicated dance of youthful attraction and longing”. Read her review:
The business of being human and falling in love is fraught with psychological and emotional traps, some mere speed bumps on the way to romantic fulfilment, others black holes.
We’re not as in control as we’d like to believe when it comes to who we find attractive. Often, psychological currents beyond our comprehension propel us towards that which we desire. All of which have the potential to make good theatre.
It is this complicated dance of youthful attraction and longing that playwright Craig Higginson explores in The Girl in the Yellow Dress, a taut, psychosexual two-hander.
