Nat is married to Michael but she can’t stand talking to him or
bear to have him near her. Ben is dating Chloe but hasn’t been able
to communicate with her as himself for weeks. Kate and James are in denial
that there is more to their relationship than sex. Each of the three couples
is given an invitation to an exclusive club by the mysterious and smooth
Alex and Ryan. Within the walls of the club married people become single
and names are changed in the pursuit of bodily pleasures.
‘All Things Considered’ follows the turbulence and the intensity
of four relationships and asks the question: 'Is love’s language
limited to kindness, intimacy and sex, or whether when all things considered
love will be strengthened by the moments of anger, frustration and doubt?'
The production is finished to a professional standard and the interaction
between the actors demonstrates their strong abilities. The successful
use of minimalist props combines with an interesting and humorous script
to produce an entertaining and thought-provoking play.
