Commentaires : This was a love-it-or-hate-it revival. It was completely re-thought as a present-day video game, played by a present-day Pippin, with the Leading Player “guiding” him through the various “levels”: family, violence, orgiastic sex, religious quest, ordinary life and a grim suicidal interlude. Set in an adolescent boy’s bedroom, it is filled with elaborate projections, light displays, neon laser beams and hi-tech visual trickery. It was also very, very loud! After the first month the role of Berthe was played by a series of performers, Caroline Quentin, Gay Soper, Josie Lawrence and then back to Louise Gold for the last two weeks. It previewed from November 22 nd, and collected strongly polarised notices: “Up Allegory Creek without a paddle. . . excruciatingly fey” (Times), “staggeringly incoherent” (Financial Times), “ a bold, radical revival with a certain dizzying appeal” (Time Out)
