HOT: Contains Violence, Lyric Hammersmith

The creative concept of this play is what makes it exciting - you're given a pair of headphones and 8x40 binoculars, then you sit on the outdoor terrace of the theatre peering into the windows of the building across the square as the action unfolds, a la Hitchcock's Rear Window. The play itself is a confused jumbled loop involving penguins, peaches and vanilla, cross-dressing, obsessive love and a cherry-picker crane. Well worth the experience (our discussion on the tube ride home was very interesting) - just remember to rug up and buy your tickets quickly, as the sold-out session has just been extended until 10 May.
