Blood is Michael Philip Edwards’ brilliant vision of the sexual politics that manifest between lust and love, man and woman. Magnificently portrayed by Maria Tomas and Phrederic Semaj, both actors offer a provocative and heady glimpse into the mechanics of the hearts and loins of two star crossed lover’s who must navigate the perils of an uninvited succubus into their union. Semaj skillfully interprets the wide eyed groom, disillusioned by sex in the modern age, who must come to terms with his own hubris to rescue his failing marriage. Playing opposite is Tomas’ masterfully played cynical bride, who counters her own disillusionment with pluck and wit.
Blood is a definite game changer for the Fringe Festival. Highly recommended.
