Feel More - a ★★★★ brief moment of time!

Feel More
Proforça Theatre Company’s Artistic Director David Brady took over the management of the Lion and Unicorn Theatre just about a year ago, with a mission ‘to create theatre performances which challenge, confront and engage audiences’. From the buzz in the room last night on the second night of Feel More, this is fast becoming a powerhouse venue. And, from my experience, quite rightly so. Their production of At Last was, in my opinion, one of the best pieces of new work last year, gaining many excellent reviews, an Off West End OffComm nomination, and a second run at the end of 2019.
Feel More is an evening of seven new twelve-minute pieces of writing, where seven new characters living their lives in the modern world, tell seven new stories all ultimately about the universal theme of searching.
This is a production chock-full of elegant simplicity and is a truly stylish delight. A simple black-box with four coloured classic chairs as the only real set on which each actor performs – Miles Parker, Kirsty Cherrett, Aaron Phineas Peters, Paul Waggott, Jimin Suh, Aimee Kember, Luke Dayhill.
Director Jess Barton has fashioned seven captivating vignettes, drawing seriously unique, poignant warmth in each brief scenario, as she explores the eternal heartache and joy of relationships, family, love and death. Writers – Laura Shoebottom, Ollie George Clark, Georgie Bailey, Kim Scopes,  Jack Albert Scott, Gabrielle Nellis-Pain,  James Lewis – have all written stories of moving sensitivity, heroically telling complex stories in what is, in effect, a wonderfully brief moment of time.
Sadly, as I write this, there are only two more performances of Feel More. And from what I understand, demand for tickets is understandably high. So I would deduce that David Brady is a master marketeer, as well as an ace artistic director. So my simple advice would be book now to avoid disappointment. Or hope for another, back by public demand run, which it richly deserves!
