Review of In Tents and Purposes
Harlow Playhouse

WE would like to think that sooner rather than later, someone will recognise that Roxy Dunn is a writer of razor sharp scripts and snap her up.

We hope so because then we can say we saw in Tents and Purposes and laughed and laughed and laughed.

Fans of film critic Mark Kermode will know of the five laugh test, well this zooms past five in the first five minutes.

This was so sharp, so clever and so well observed. Roxy also acts in this two hander with the wonderfully expressive, Alys Metcalf, who had wonderful comic timing.

We are not sure if it is feminist comedy, perhaps it is simply funny stuff written by a woman. It would be interesting to know who Roxy is influenced by. For some reason we were thinking about Elaine May and Smack the Pony.

The audience really loved it and they laughed out loud a lot as well.

Highly recommended.
