We enter the auditorium to be greeted by what appears to be a boyfriend and girlfriend stuck on a stranded train between Bath and Bristol! The setting set up enhanced this feeling and made you feel like you were looking in on the carriage.
It transpires that they albeit are best friends they are definitely not boyfriend and girlfriend! Over the next 30 mins we witness the unravelling of emotions linked to a relationship that was blown apart by the male protagonist comes out as gay. A fact they both handle with more petty drama than a pair of drag queens fighting over top billing! This worked in it’s favour for the most but the pettiness of the argument needed some more explosive real plot exposition to truly represent the issue being raised in the “involuntary confinement” the pair find themselves.
All in all I enjoyed the spats between the best friends but would like more raw emotion and less resolution.
