True Minds

There was a full house, and the audience enjoyed the humour.  But we thought True Minds at MTC was a series of one-liners in search of a plot!

As usual, we hadn't searched out the reviews before we saw it (well, what's the point, the tickets were booked months ago), but in retrospect, this one is pretty much on the money.  Yes, it was all funny enough - there are lots of laughs as the play makes fun of just about everyone.  The leftie, the right winger, the grown-old hippie, the social climber, the substance abuser, you name it, they're all there.

But at the end of the day, we thought the News review hit it on the head:  the characters and the story are fairly two-dimensional, and the drama seems to get lost in the flurry of arguments that often turn into shouting matches or drunken rants.
