REVIEW:
Chasing Pegasus (a play in ten chords)
Luke Troynar, 3RRR
12 October 2006

Chasing Pegasus (a play in ten chords) is a performance which celebrates what makes us different and what ultimately makes us all the same. Divided into ten monologues, spawing from the ten characters who are all part of the Serendipity Book Club, each monologue lets us explore each member of the Book Club's own personal story, and lays bare all their fears, desires and dreams.

While the character's stories all reveal a range of very different tales, they all share one common theme - each character's determination to follow their dreams and become more than the sum of their parts.

The message of the play is a pleasant one as well as a clear one - no matter how much suffering there is in the world, there is always hope.

While the play features some strong performances from a cast containing many familiar faces from Australian television, some of the stars seem to shine a lot brighter than others, leaving the overall performance perhaps a little uneven.

The script is engaging, and at times insightful. Overall, if you're in the mood for some dramatic theatre with interesting characters, inspiring stories and a feel-good, uplifting message, Chasing Pegasus provides an ultimately engaging hour of theatre.

(thank you to Xenia for emailing the transcript to us for inclusion on this site)
