No Time for Strangers by Mermaids Performing Arts Fund.

When a stranger walks onto the train platform he has no idea what awaits him. Spotting the two friends already on the platform, who are deep in conversation what happens when they finally stop to engage with him?

The madness of the storyline mimics the chaos and uncertainty that could be found on a train platform. Nobody is sure when and where the next train is due. As he goes into the station offices to attempt to find someone who might know he discovers they have no idea either.

The script is disjointed and disorganised at times. Then it’s described as a play that doesn’t “take itself seriously ” and certainly lives up to the claim.

There are comedy moments within the script. With elements of the BBC comedy series A League of Gentlemen surreal ideas and formula running through it. I don’t particularly find this comedy funny. However, the audience was laughing most of the way through it.
