    Jesus Has My Mom In There And Has Beat Her Up Real Bad

    Fiona McCann

    It’s taken me so long to type out the title, I’m not sure how much energy I have for the rest of this post, but suffice to say that this Loose Canon piece is a thought-provoking, if at times unthreaded, exploration of movement, migration, memory and love. An excellent cast – Simon Coury and Caitríona Ní Mhurchú are particularly magnetic – give presence and pace to this entertaining and diffuse piece of experimental theatre, all the more impressive considering the same cast had been simultaneously rehearsing Anatomy of a Seagull, which also went up in the Absolut Fringe festival last week. One to watch.

      I saw that title on one of their posters last week and instantly fell in love with it, but was hurrying and didn’t have a chance to take in the details of the show. Glad to hear it doesn’t disappoint. Is it still running or was it a one-off?

      Andrew: Runs till Saturday, I believe. The performers did a great job, and I really like the Smock Alley space. If you go see it, tell me what you think. . .
