THEATRE REVIEW: Lovesick ★★★★

There’s a breathness to Georgina Barley’s Lovesick, developed by listening to the Bob Dylan song of the same name, that has a richness and fresh take on a two-hander play; From a Consultation Room to a warm, embracing home, the dynamic between patient and surgeon is one that is unique to the genre, moving away from the countless Teacher to Student relationships that seem to overwhelm the industry. Acting as Writer and Performer in this piece, Barley sets up Sarah as a woman with lots of questions, and most importantly, who the donor was that gave away their heart to them embodies hers. It’s one that may sound a little elusive, but due to the weird, and at times toxic, relationship that Sarah shares with Maggie, played by the formidable Avena Mansergh-Wallace, she strives for answers, and ultimately receives more than closure. Director Marlie Haco does a blinding job in extracting the text and bring these complex characters to life, and the chemistry from the duo
