A tale of self-discovery and the meaning of life, Night Letters narrates the trials and tribulations of one man as he journeys across Europe and is confronted by questions of his own mortality, masculinity and identity.
A somewhat confronting story greets punters in the Downstairs theatre at the Seymour Centre for this production presented by So What? Productions and 2011 Mardi Gras Festival. Staging enveloping the audience, with the actors in place, scattered throughout the venue before you take your seat. You feel like you are really walking into their existing world.
Sean Ohlendorf, who portrays Robert, the central character, sucks you into his world expertly, with not only a flawless delivery of the material, but with a heart fluttering presence that makes you instantly fall for his character and feel for every story he and his scene partners deliver.
The play itself is a multi arc journey, with actors playing several roles, in seemingly different times in history. At times a little confusing - but it all comes together in the end.
A relatively large cast encompasses some fresh and incredibly talented performances. Their individual commitment to the roles is second to none and they have a fresh, yet seasoned style that works well with the content.
Funny, engaging and disturbing - Night Letters confronts the audience with illness, abuse, love and sacrifice.
This production has definitely left its mark - you know something has effected you when the next day you have flashbacks, goosebumps and you jump on the net to find out more about the cast and crew and the story itself.
