    Eighty three is a prime number. Must be an irregularly shaped room.

    Not just any prime number. 5mod6 and its safe prime too.

    Although I'm a bit puzzled as to me it doesn't look anything like a room.

    My mistake. The capacity of the room was eighty nine, six more than the number of punters present. Eighty nine is also a prime, a Chen prime no less. Assuming that eighty nine seats have been provided then they can not be arranged in a rectangular pattern unless one regards a single row or file of eighty nine seats as a rectangle and the performance is taking place in a corridor.

    It's Embra and it's festival time, a performace in a corridor sounds almost conventional.^_^

    It could be theatre in the round?

    You'd think with a title like Pornography the play might contain some full frontal nudity. I'm not falling for that trick though. It will just be a two hour talking shop.

    Excellent. Is the Kid acting, writing, directing, producing or all five?

    Five is a prime too.

    she's acting. It's her first gig, but she's in company with people with a good deal of experience, so it should be ok. They're a bit RADA-ish and she's a natural comedian, so she thinks they're overdoing the Sturm und Drang a bit. Mind you, the play is about the 7/7 bombings, so seriousness may be in order.

    ta-ran-ta-ra!

    The Acting:

    The acting is good. Since Organised Crime Theatre are a young company – mostly still in various universities, friends from school or college, I think – the performances are several notches better than you might cynically believe you have any right to expect. No one is actually bad. A couple of the performers might either do a bit too much acting, or not quite enough, but in general this is a fine ensemble.

    Along with Ken Nwosu [see below], special mention should be made of Daisy Bata's “student” and Zoe Templeman-Young's “Sister”. And, sure, there's nothing ickier than a critic more-or-less old enough to be the actress-in-question's father praising their handling of on-stage sexuality, but there it is. Those are two of the more difficult parts in the play, parts which make actual demands of the performer beyond speaking convincingly, and both Bata and Templeman-Young actually did the best job with the parts that I've seen British actresses do (this excludes Sean Holme's UK première). Indeed, Bata might well have been better than the German too (it's harder to compare Templeman-Young's performance with her German counterpart, since he was a large ginger man).
