A packed house gathered at the Camden People’s Theatre to see Affairs on Friday night. It is a quirky and clever piece of theatre that looks deeply at the issues of infidelity, love, sex and emotion.
Sophie Walton is the lone actress that brings the story to life, with her engaging stage presence. I was impressed that Rob Young the writer had written it so authentically in the “voice” of a woman. It really did feel like her story that she was sharing with us. It had the spontaneity and wit that gave it a realism that made it compelling to watch and listen too.
Like any true life story it has many surprises and complexities along the way, which only added to the intrigue and fun of the narrative. Which made for an enjoyable and thought-provoking night at the theatre for me.
