Thought provoking and disturbing
LA JOHN Joseph plays in an autobiographical account of her journey from Liverpool to New York, asking questions about identity and gender along the way.
In the opening scene, the audience is drawn to the set by the boy in the box and as it unfolds we are introduced to John Joseph, who sits aloft a tall and not very stable wardrobe. The story begins to unfold of a tough, poor upbringing of an in Irish boy in Liverpool, with particular reference to the Catholic Church and the many differences in us all, not only in gender, but in power and position in society. Next to come to the audience's attention is JJ's mirror image, played by Erin Siobhan, whose use of physical theatre to convey her message of John Joseph's female self was most convincing, whilst a woman playing a man who is pretending to be a women was executed well.
The craft of this production was in its ability to link the varying stages of JJ's life with the use of song, mime and costume. The musical accompaniment by Ed Jaspers was understated but added enough drama that at times the audience were lost in the moment and when a natural pause came for perhaps a burst of applause it never came, not because it wasn't merited but just because the audience was taken up with the moment.
This was a thought provoking production, enjoyable but at times a little disturbing, but John Joseph, Erin & Eric produced a performance of great effect.
